Clara (Ellen David) is a dutiful mom, wife, and daughter. She scarifies to take care of her dying mother who hates her husband. Instead of being grateful, her mother tells her that she doesn't know her. She tries to change and reevaluate her own relationship with her daughter Bianca (Caroline Dhavernas). Only her promiscuous daughter is struggling with her own problems.
Ellen David seems ill at ease in this role. She just seems more at ease with a comedic role. She does some serious emotionally damaging things in this movie. She really needs to suffer for those emotions.
Caroline Dhavernas is simply too old to play this role. She's in her late 20s and that's what she looks like. The role starts at age 16 and goes till she's 21. She plays a sexually promiscuous role which would be so much shocking if she was closer to the actual age of the character.
This movie deals with some serious family dysfunctions, some serious emotional damage, and some serious personal growth. It has a couple of interesting scenes, but it just doesn't flow together as a compelling story.
