Storyline

Following the death of her father, a teenage Dot moves into the home of her godparents and their teenage daughter Nina. Dot arrives wrapped up in the silence of being deaf-mute. She finds a different kind of silence waiting for her in her new home, for this home is a place with a dark secret involving Nina and her father. At first, Dot and Nina seem to be polar opposites. However, they gradually realize how much they have in common. Bringing them together catalyzes a series of events in which both reveal their secrets and shed their double lives. A violent consummation almost destroys them. Yet they find hope for the future in the quiet after the storm. Written by Charles Delacroix

a serious movie without a boring moment
20 December 2006 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

the reason why I think it was worth 10 is story was great, you follow the persons i there every day life at school and home, the reason for there behavior and the reason for what person they have become slowly come's together at the end. Each scene tell's so much, Nina are struggling keep a balance in her life and never get's a chance, her mother has given up and deal with her life trough drugs and Dot who pretend that's she doesn't now what's going on. I had that feeling at the end that I wish it could go on and never stop. Elisha Cuthbert and Camilla Belle play excellent an is a pure joy to watch and they a well supported the rest of the cast.
