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.

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.
