Great film, much enjoyed.
19 October 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This was a great little film. The plot was interesting, intriguing. The film takes place in the future where there is an out-of-control virus and many people are forced into containment areas. It tells the story of a boy whose brother tried to escape the containment area and was shot, and how he copes with his life and his mother. I would not label it as exactly science fiction though. It does take place in the future where there is a virus, but the film focuses more on the drama of the situation, rather than the action. Its not an "Outbreak" or "12 Monkeys" type action movie. It will appeal more to people who like drama with a twist of a darker, almost 1984-like future. Nice film, would recommend it.
