CGiii Comment

This is so very special. Subtext done to absolute perfection.

The complexities are a dichotomy...the dichotomies are complex.

Desperation leads to desperate acts...or, do they? A sincerity may actually be present!

A film brave enough to raise the important issue of immigrant homophobia...it really is a cause for concern. 

All religions seems to preach love, peace and forgiveness...it's just a pity than none of them practise what they preach.

An astounding piece of work.


No trailer...

The(ir) Blurb...
