Exploring the unexplored
7 October 2008 | by TwistTheDollSee all my reviews

This film does a great job exploring and uncovering the dark depths of a scarcely known subject admist the background of fast-paced metro Melbourne. As the film progresses, you become entranced by the characters' struggle and desperate attempt to escape a bleak situation from all sides, the illegal sex-trade slaves; the mother looking for her lost child in a foreign country and the insurance worker who somehow found herself reluctantly assisting her. Disturbing and eye-opening, the scenarios are forcefully binding you towards a fortunate outcome. The ending, in all it's raw harshness really intertwines with the conveyance of the film and the hint of realism dejects. I have to say, I really enjoyed it.

Great cast, and great script. The young actresses in particular, are ones to watch out for.
