This kitchen sink drama, all about a brother and sister trying to make ends meet in Vancouver after migrating from the Ukraine, is one of those movies you almost instantly forget about. It does have some appealing quantitities I suppose, most specifically, Stephanie Hayes' performance, but the negatives far outweigh the negatives. Boring camera work, a laughable male lead who's accent comes and goes chewing up the scenery, and a script that ultimately goes nowhere leading to a dull conclusion that in the end, you just don't care for these characters and you're left shrugging your shoulders and saying, 'Meh'. I'm all for independent Canadian cinema. But it doesn't have to have the effect of fingernails scratching on the blackboard.
