Storyline

Small Beautiful Hands is a story that explores a married woman's psychological journey through the flashbacks of her childhood assault to her first step toward reclaiming innocence.

A troubled woman walks into deep water to drown herself. Frantically, her husband searches for her and, just as he turns to see her floating body in the water, the image fades to their life together three days earlier.

Susan and Daniel are a fun-loving young couple celebrating their anniversary. Daniel unwittingly delivers Susan to the cottage of her past. Once there, she can no longer escape the flood of her memories, the crush she had on her father's friend, and the terrifying rape.

Memory and reality blur as she re-lives her rape and her attempted suicide. Daniel drags his wife from the lake and resuscitates her. In this moment, Susan must decide to have the courage to trust her husbands love.

Brave and beautiful film!
10 March 2007 | by bigdaddymougSee all my reviews

The director has put together a film that is not only beautifully captured along the shores of the Great Lakes but is also brave and tender. More filmmakers should have the creative 'backbone' to dive into a story such as Small Beautiful Hands. Ms. Lee also cast excellent actors such as John Hawkinson and Dennis North - and was smart enough to 'get out of their way' and let them perform! Great JOB to all in front of the camera and behind!!! The Director of Photography, Lon Stratton, displays work in this film that shows why is one of the premiere cinematographers in the midwest. Great acting also turned in by the young actress - what a performance for someone of any age in this type of a story.
