Storyline

A family of seven lives on a New England island with nobody else. One winter, they got stranded because the bay froze over. This didn't much matter to them, but someone on the mainland remembered them and launched an aerial rescue mission; an unfounded story that one boy had appendicitis results in a larger rescue mission, with the situation rapidly escalating into a major catastrophe all because of the rescue mission. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Another little gem for the NFB of Canada
3 May 2003 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Nice short film about a family that's living quietly and peacefully on an isolated island. Life is good, until the outside world comes into play. From there, a series of event leads to the disintegration of the family.

Out of 100, I gave it 79. That's good for *** out of ****.

Seen at home, in Toronto, on January 3rd, 2003.
