Family and Morals versus work and promotion
2 August 2002 | by (Manlleu, Catalonia) – See all my reviews

A family that just has started their vacation, must return home because the father (Ernest Borgnine) is required by his boss. When they arrive, realize that they forgotten a harmless rabbit trap ready. Because of the insistence of his son, he try to convince his boss to let him go to the vacation spot to check whether any rabbit has been caught, and so release him from a slow death agony. He must choose between his job, or give a good example of compassion and love to all creatures to his son. The Ernest Borgnine acting is at his best. I love this film.
