  1. This dealt with the sensitive topic excellently and the acting was superb; both subtle and bold at the appropriate moments. The only thing was that the dialogue could be a bit predictable but this was a very good film. Well done!

  2. Brilliant issue based drama. Acting was good, great to see young filmmakers challenge some of life's ethics through storytelling. Well Done. Enjoyed this short.

  4. Brilliant film! Though, could've done with a sound effect when Micheal was hit and maybe better transiting between shots and scenes? But other then that - its a lovely and sweet film!? <3
