This film is about a young man committing a crime, and how the crime changed 2 families' life and his life forever.
This film is particularly impressive when it comes to the acting performance. Brent, the burglar, goes through emotional turmoil after accidentally paralysing someone. The way he struggles with himself is very well portrayed. The way how he slowly hates himself for having done such a crime is fully shown. The scene where he had to deal with the hand that left fingerprints around was extremely disturbing. Brent's sister also performs well in this film. She is rejected by her parents, and is a victim of domestic violence. She is so desperate for help, but she does not get any.
This film serves as a reflection as to how our little action in daily life can have profound effects on others.
