This was a very powerful short. And I can honestly say I did not see that ending coming at all.
The girl who played Ruby did an excellent job. It is refreshing to see child actors who don't go over the top with the Disney Channel-style overacting. I think she played it perfectly.
The Dad's comatose state was maddening and elicited so many questions from me, like "When is going to snap out of it?" and "Doesn't he see how he is hurting Ruby?" I had a real visceral response to his inaction and I'm sure that is what the filmmaker intended.
There are so many touching scenes in this film and the ending is so incredibly powerful and unexpected. I don't want to give too much away because this whole film should be experienced on your own terms.
