Storyline

Life on the Rock never seemed easy, but for Mitsy it is especially rough. The teenager has been abandoned by her mother, a particularly unfit parent prone to both the bottle and the sex trade. She is left to be brought up by her mercurial grandmother Bride, who is well-meaning but oppressively suffocating. Mitsy's dreams for the future hinge on her desire to be a hairdresser, but her current emotional well-being revolves around a wee dog named Sparky, an unwanted canine misfit to whom she becomes hopelessly attached. After Bride agrees to let Mitsy take the dog in as a pet, the teen tries desperately to create a happy, safe place for Sparky to thrive - basically, she wants to offer the dog the kinds of comforts she has never known. But Mitsy's life is shaken once more when her mother returns to Newfoundland. Even though Mitsy is thrilled, Bride wants nothing to do with her never-do-well deadbeat daughter.

Needs to have more publicity
9 October 2010 | by myrna01See all my reviews

I cannot help but compare this to "Precious " made in the United States Both deal with young females from poor dysfunctional families , trying to find a better way The emotional and physical abuse displayed by the three generations of women were painful to watch, the absolute hate . just drove me to tears... The dog in the movie was tied up, mistreated and bore the brunt of everyone's frustrations. This is what made is so difficult for me to watch. I understand that the director of Precious made the decision not to show any type of animal cruelty because the American audience wouldn't tolerate it.

The poverty in Newfoundland was seen in every part of the movie, you couldn't escape it , just the way they couldn't seem to get out of their own way. The trailer for this movie did not reflect what a wonderful but painful movie this is
