Storyline

Right under everyone's noses, Kelly--the sixteen-year-old daughter of the devoted father and aspiring country singer, Alain--vanishes into thin air, during a mid-1990s cowboy fair. Convinced that his girl is kidnapped and that her incomprehensible disappearance is somehow connected to her newly discovered Muslim boyfriend, a furious and desperate Alain sets out on a long journey into the unknown to find missing Kelly, following a menacing trail of breadcrumbs from Antwerp to Yemen and Pakistan. Against the backdrop of the devastating September 11 attacks, Alain and his son, Georges, find themselves always one step behind, as fierce hatred turns into destructive obsession. A father and a brother want their Kelly back; however, is the young woman they seek, the woman they lost? Written by Nick Riganas

Beautiful, thoughtful and unexpected
16 June 2016 | by mattdearmer-10066See all my reviews

I saw this film with no knowledge of it beforehand, and it was a great surprise.

The film's look and feel is beautiful, reminding me of Rust and Bone in tone and feel. The score and soundtrack also suitably served the film, reminding me of the score for 'Seven' in places, the ominous strings swell and suggest the dread and uncertainty that the family are going through as their lives unravel. And then there's the subject matter, which in this day and age is very hard to tackle especially in the current climate.

This is a thoughtful and beautiful film that touches on a very complex issue and is expertly paced. A real treat.
