An Effective Addressing of Social Ills
15 September 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The heroine, a lawyer, has worked on a sensitive political case involving corruption in high places. But, she finds herself institutionalized against her will. She blames the power of those corrupt politicians. She considers herself wrongfully "imprisoned". As time progresses, she gets closer to the truth about the case and herself. Some of the people in the institution become her friends. They help her.

It takes a certain amount of patience to let the subtle plot unfold. The movie looks at life carefully admitting only what she believes to be the truth. As she discovers more, the movie pulls together nicely.

This is a story of courage and learning to know oneself. A fascinating expose of life.
