worth watching
2 September 2018 | by ambermrothwellSee all my reviews

This film is a simple meditation on what is sacred. It grapples with the complications of poverty, desire, truth, and religion. It touches on what is forbidden & the shame of crossing lines within an individuals own ethics. It offers a window into the way a person can betray not only those around them but the deepest regions of themselves with one moment of indiscretion turning something tiny into a tidal wave. Worth watching.
