Storyline

A young woman joins a group of protesters trying to stop the construction of a highway through a forest with the purpose of having sex with their leader. But when morning comes and the authorities show up to disband the protesters, she hits a man with a log. This causes the two to have to go on the run. With the help of a sickly, but sympathetic woman, the two slip through police roadblocks. Traveling with her, they learn she is an ex-army lesbian who just wants to see a final sunrise at the Orkney Islands before her death. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Excellent Character development
19 December 1999 | by (Sheffield, England) – See all my reviews

This movie may not become popular but I found it a highly competent film with excellent character development. My attitude to the characters changed as the film went along and and I began to sympathise and understand the "outrageous" behaviour of Charleen as the extent of her abuse became apparent.

I sincerely hope that we will see more of Christine Tremarco who put in an excellent performance in the lead role. Also, Sheila Hancocks veteran performance was first class - the best of an excellent bunch!!
