Excellent
14 March 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a very powerful film that delves into the mean unforgiving streets of Vancouver's Downtown East Side.

It follows the lives of a First Nations brother and sister struggling to survive and feed their drug addictions.

I found the film to be real, gritty and true to life.

Being First Nations I empathize with the filmmaker's vision and commend the producers as well as actors and crew for making such a realistic look at our society on the mean streets of Vancouver.

I feel this is a universal story that can take place in any Canadian/American city.
