Nice short film about a family that's living quietly and peacefully on an isolated island. Life is good, until the outside world comes into play. From there, a series of event leads to the disintegration of the family.
Out of 100, I gave it 79. That's good for *** out of ****.
Seen at home, in Toronto, on January 3rd, 2003.
