Comments: A guy, Callum, and girl, Hailey are out playing in the woods. Hailey finds something and takes it home. Then we are treated to some weird visuals. What do they mean?
Then it is five years later. Callum has come home and is looking for answers.
There are some amazing visuals to illustrate what is going on. Hailey is so beautiful while Callum does seem a bit of a mess in looks and actions both.
The acting that is done comes across as great. Only there is very little of it.
The film’s ending leaves you wondering is this really the end? What happened? There is a slight explanation as to what is going on and then it does not finish you are left hanging.
The film needed to be longer to get more into the characters and the story.
Natalia Dyer and Christopher Dylan White both give a convincing performance of two friends that did care about each other. Then the one friend having to deal with the loss of the other. You will feel sad for them.
