Dividing four related narratives of hope and struggle into four self-contained vignettes, first-time feature director Kyle Thomas creates a Raymond Carver-esque portrait of life on the Alberta Badlands.

Our take

Director Kyle Thomas’s impressive debut may be small in scale but its weighs big on emotional ambition. With touching sensitivity, Thomas adeptly weaves together four intimate stories of lives that have reached breaking points, exploring the touchstones of family, community, love, and loss.
