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.
We’re celebrating National Canadian Film Day with REEL CANADA by exclusively showing director Kyle Thomas’s impressive debut. Small scale but emotionally ambitious, it adeptly weaves four stories of lives coming to their breaking points with touching sensitivity.
This film showed four individual but intertwined stories. Set in Alberta, Canada, these stories each give honest compelling narratives about how people deal with issues like teen pregnancy, alcoholism, divorce and suicide. It reminds you that everyone, truly everyone has their own weird pleasures and secret behind-the-scenes crap. In this movie, you will feel the characters crises as their individual valley.
