Storyline

Lily lives a simple life in the Pacific Northwest, far away from the dangerous dysfunction of her family. A high school dropout and painfully aware of her limited education, Lily spends hours at the library with her homeless friend Alfred trying to improve herself. When her older Sister Denice arrives from California with an abusive, drug addicted husband and two damaged children in tow, Lily is thrust into a present day version of her own childhood. As her world unravels she is swept into a sea of violence that leads to the brink of murder where her own life and freedom are threatened. Unwilling to accept her circumstance, Lily searches deep in herself, beyond a childhood filled with conditional love, to find a way to lead her Sister from the clutches of abuse and discover the meaning of love without exceptions.

Trivia

The origami crane which Lily makes for Alfred, was made of a sale flyer for the Title Wave Used Bookstore. It was folded by a library employee since no one on the crew could do origami folding. See more »

Very cool!
5 April 2004 | by (Tigard, OR) – See all my reviews

These were the first words that I thought of when I watched this: It was sweet and intense and colorful and real. I liked it very much.

On more than one occasion, I was surprised by the direction events took. This is good.

The characters were all a little whack in their own ways and that was good, too.

There were flashbacks and they didn't interrupt the narrative and they FELT like flashbacks, momentary reveries, in their implementation.

I encourage people to see this movie when they can.

I hope Rebecca Rodriguez makes more movies and I look forward to seeing them.
