This is a story of youthful carelessness that leads of a death and the blame, bitterness, love and forgiveness that follows. This low budget first feature by the filmmakers contains unexpected quality, although shows rough edges. Only a couple of actors have any serious experience, so when some engaging performances was demonstrated, I was glad that I gave its slow, somewhat clumsy beginning a pass. Production values are higher than one usually experiences in low budget firsts and a plus is original music by Plan 9. Well worth a view.
