This is an incredible film, pushing all sorts of boundaries, from characterisation to narrative structure. Incredibly bold & brave with amazing cinematography

BY lionspaw lister

Led by detailed and captivating performances by McDowell and Lions this is a very personal tale of two women told in a lyric visual style with moments of humour and great loss which does not pull any punches. It is very human mystery story of their lives which held my attention from beginning to end. Another rich example of how far Kiwi filmmaking has progressed.
