Storyline

Leeanne Rosser a strong but world-weary 20 year-old solo mother, sits on a hot train with her one-year-old, half-Samoan son Sam. It's her mother's birthday and Leeanne and Sam put up with the heat to visit her in Wainuiomata. But her mother is feeling the pull of the church, and refuses to accept Leeanne's baby born out of marriage. Leeanne's father is helpless to bring them together. Unknown to all of them, Leeanne's brother Brent is out creating mischief. He pretends to be a student or a bible salesman, and then robs houses when their owners are absent. Today an unsuspecting victim, Ulla, returns home during his robbery. Brent panics and sends Ulla plummeting down the steps with a sickening crack. For Leeanne and her family, and Ulla and her family, from that moment on, everything is changed. Ulla is paralyzed, her neck broken. Ulla has a 15 year-old daughter Olivia and an estranged husband Athol, who still lives at home and buries himself in his rental properties. Her husband's ... Written by NZ Film Commission

Cruel reflection on humanity
6 November 2006 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

This film is about a young man committing a crime, and how the crime changed 2 families' life and his life forever.

This film is particularly impressive when it comes to the acting performance. Brent, the burglar, goes through emotional turmoil after accidentally paralysing someone. The way he struggles with himself is very well portrayed. The way how he slowly hates himself for having done such a crime is fully shown. The scene where he had to deal with the hand that left fingerprints around was extremely disturbing. Brent's sister also performs well in this film. She is rejected by her parents, and is a victim of domestic violence. She is so desperate for help, but she does not get any.

This film serves as a reflection as to how our little action in daily life can have profound effects on others.
