This short film reveals a surprising depth of psychological and emotional truth. The script, the acting and the direction are as good as it gets. I particularly liked that the action of the film - 'action', for me, is psychological or it's just another car-chase movie - takes place within the tight confines of a duck blind. There's no escape. These two men must deal with their shared history and their present interpretations of it. They must consider such matters as the malleability of memory and confront their options: accept, forgive, move forward... or none of the above. In a brief time and in a small space, Davis Hall and company have given us a uniquely personal taste of what it is to be a human being on the planet in these times, our fragility and pain exposed. Specifically, the film addresses an Anglo Saxon, masculine fragility that has difficulty revealing itself, much less expressing itself. An Anglo Saxon female with my own fragility, and with significant experience with male fragility, I was moved to tears. This is fine storytelling. I am looking forward to what this brilliant company comes with next.
