Wonderfully made little film with an important message.
1 April 2017 | by Penny PittsSee all my reviews

A beautiful piece of film making. Lush cinematography, AMAZING soundscape. Despite having very little dialogue, Colin Morgan's portrayal of a suicidal young man is heartbreaking and gut-wrenchingly realistic. Kudos to everyone involved in making this little masterpiece.
