A prime cause of this film's failure is its very disjointed screenplay, which bedevils staunch efforts of some fine Canadian actors, in particular: Don Francks, Kate Lynch, Patricia Collins and Michael Ironside. The plot relates some sort of ostensible attempt by a young man to recover that portion of his memory lost due to a road collision, but a woefully low budget controls the action more than does the director. Whoever edited this misplay should be called to account for some gratingly inadequate footage, including that in several scenes wherein the players' dialogue is drowned by traffic and other extraneous noises. The inner elements of the flashback saturated script incorporate a wide range of themes, including detection, filial loyalty, and sexual vagaries (among which: incest), but a huge gap remains between these and their development.
