Her life-long friend and soul mate, Christine, tries to help, but her allegiances are split over new friends. But now Emily has a mysterious new friend, Amber, who seems to understand her better than anyone. Togetherthey tempt death seeking a new home that exists only in the life on the other side of death.

Excellent movie, realistic, engaging, thought provoking
28 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Black Oasis" is an extremely well done film that I found to be very professionally executed in terms of both cinematic quality, realistic dialog, character development, and plot depth. The technical quality of the opening credits is extremely high. The color and sound of the film is also of a very high technical quality. The scene settings are well done, especially the crash scene and its aftermath. The actors were lifelike and believable. The film raises thought provoking issues with a non preachy depiction of the tragic consequences of an unhappy and depressed teenager influenced by a false friend to reject the true friendship of a childhood friend who has become a Christian. I highly recommend this very interesting and well done film.
