Storyline

Lola is an eccentric woman in her 30s who lives in a daze of girlish expectations, not knowing what to believe, or what to expect from life, and never clear about where things are heading. Her relationship is in a constant state of confusion, mostly because her husband Mike behaves more like her father than a partner. He is short-tempered and egotistical, with little tolerance for her indecisiveness, so the two coexist in a lavish environment of sterility and tension. Lola's life takes a sudden turn when she saves the life of a mysterious woman. Sandra is everything Lola wants to be: confident, outspoken, in control of her destiny. But the promise of a relationship between the two women is cut short when Sandra's dark past catches up with her. On the run from this fateful encounter, but too scared to return home, Lola goes on the road to fulfill the destiny of a woman she barely knows. As she moves through the landscape toward Sandra's childhood home, she slowly starts to absorb her ... Written by Anonymous

Fantastic Canadian Indie
13 July 2003 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Great little movie. Shot in the mountains in Alberta, a simple story about a girl running away from her older partner too journey home. Colm Feore and Sabrina Grdevich both do fantastic jobs. It's nice to see that movies like this are made in Canada where it seems acting/directing/writing talent is pretty sparse these days.
