Production designer Rita Zanchetta was very much living in the 1970s and 1980s while working on this picture. She said: "We were very determined to design it in with the look of the 70's and early 80's in the belief that the main character and her mother had not moved on from the time." See more »
The film's plot, such as it is, revolves around a teenage or pre-teen girl named Frances, who disappeared some twenty years ago and the profound effect it had and continues to have on her mother and younger sister, Elise. Elise is now an adult but we have flashbacks throughout the film.
Eventually some extremely vague hints are made regarding some things that might have happened to Frances prior to her disappearance - but nothing is ever clearly stated.
So what happened to Frances? Well, nobody ever really says - suicide, murdered, snatched by someone, or ran off? Just go with whichever one of those strikes you.
The film is more watchable than some films out there - but I would not particularly recommende it. What it mostly has going for it is that it contains no graphic sexual or violent scenes.
