An interesting story

We could consider this feature as a sort of rip off of THELMA AND LOUISE, but not a road movie. The improbable meet of two outcast women. One escaped from a psychiatric institution, a murderer wife who killed her husband. She crosses the path of a shy girl with psychological problems. There are some touching sequences in this drama thriller that looks like a TV movie. Perhaps it could have been more deeply described, I mean the relations between the two leads.

The ending is not foreseeable. Very intriguing. I don't know the director, he only made minor films or TV series in the 80and 90's.

You can live without it, but it's worthwhile.
