This is a dark, gradually building, thriller about returning home and retracing history. It is a film about childhood dreams that are shattered by the reality of the world around us, but it is also about a sixteen year old girl who hungers for the world beyond her small town. When the girl goes missing, violence and truth gradually emerge from family tragedy and betrayal that has surrounded them for years. They must finally face the consequences of that silence and secrecy. Highly Recommended.
