This low budget, first feature film is an ensemble work about a group of young adult friends exploring love and friendship, during New Year's 1999 in Pakuranga. I have tried, but this feature is like many student efforts - points for effort, but coming up short in experience. Actually it probably would have been better if edited to short story length. It is rather telling when the most interesting part of the disc is the featurette on low budget film making. Better luck next time.
