Storyline

Jamaican-Canadian emergency room nurse Jude is a single mother whose primary focus in life is her twelve year old son Ciel, that is when she isn't dealing with her incurable sickle cell disease, which will probably be the cause of her eventual death. Like his mother, Ciel is a born caregiver, whose love of music, magic and new age mysticism is in large part a way to provide his mother love and protection, especially against her illness. Regardless, Jude relates to Ciel as if she isn't sick, such as planning to take him back to Jamaica someday so that he can have a better understanding of his heritage. And Ciel hopes that his mother's belief that the ones you love never go away is true. Into their lives comes Silence, an underground fighter. He and Jude meet when he comes into the hospital due to a fighting injury. Silence is dealing with his own issues, most notably taking over the Exodus boxing club after the death of his mentor and the club's owner, Horace. Silence learns that ... Written by Huggo

Review
4 February 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A well crafted Canadian film that grips and holds the imagination and emotions of the viewer.

The characters are well developed and their emotional growth well recorded.

Viewing the film leaves one with a sense of hope and looking forward to the next film by the technical staff and cast.

This is not a light comedy and tragic scenes are sensitively portrayed. One leaves the theater feeling that in the midst of the tragedies of life one can still find hope and love.
