Storyline

Dressed in his business attire and carrying an expensive briefcase, a marketing executive named Murray is taking a shortcut through an urban park in Toronto. Lost in a secluded area of the park, he gets into an altercation with a teen-aged punk, who unknown to Murray is only one of five - four guys and a girl - in a gang. Running to get away from the gang, Murray has the idea that he will climb up a large tree to hide out until the punks leave. Unfortunately for Murray, they find him in the tree. Initially, Murray believes he has no other alternative but to do what they say. But Murray and the punks soon realize that Murray has some leverage being where he is. This altercation soon becomes a standoff and a test of wills to see who can outlast the other, the standoff which includes both physical and emotional torment on both sides, the latter as each learns more about the other.

Astounding film...
30 January 2002 | by (canada) – See all my reviews

Saw a special "Genie" (Canadian Oscar) screening this past Sunday evening. I had heard nothing but good things about this film, so i decided to attend. I was blown away. Amazing acting (THE WHOLE CAST!-which is rare these days), great direction, and the best thing of all is that it basically takes place all in one location, and does not come of as "theater" at all. I loved it, highly recommend it.
