Wow!
4 September 2015 | by MaxDMaxSee all my reviews

Great short film! The film deals with the issue of child abuse. It also tackles the subjects of bullying and racism, albeit at a smaller level. The actress who plays the mother and the actress who plays Karen are incredible! The depiction of abuse feels very, very real and will make you feel the child's pain. I know I was wincing every time Karen was in the film. Some small sound issues, but very well done for a short film with a small budget. Very, very impressed with the actors who play the roles of mother and child. Both are incredible! I will definitely watch to see what both of these actresses do in the future. Also, the music was so good! I think they are original songs. Very, very good!
