Go easy there, darling. Tommy's wound a little tight in the love department.

A thriller that makes you think long after the film is over.
It's difficult for the viewer not to share empathy with Sophonisba (Sammi Davis), as she deals with the despair of a missing child. Her far-reaching and obsessive desire to have another child, by most desperate means, foreshadows a dubious outcome for sure- but don't try to predict the ending because there are several very interesting plot twists. The movie never drags, has a suspenseful and uncomfortable musical score which heightens the senses, and keeps you engaged as two dark worlds converge and hidden truths come to light. You may never reflect upon this film as "low-budget" due to the talented cast and artful writing and direction. One of the great independent films!
