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

A Canadian gem.
4 February 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

NURSE.FIGHTER.BOY is an emotionally-moving film with something that everyone can relate to. I cried when I saw it, feeling a real connection with the people I got to know on the screen.

The characters have depth, and I quickly grew to care about them and about what they experienced.

I thought the acting was really strong, the film's look was beautiful and often symbolic, and the editing was subtly artistic in the way it enhanced the story.

The team behind this piece is a force to be reckoned with - I can hardly wait to experience their next film!
