"The comments by others merely illustrate how misunderstood PTS and depression are; or worse how little people are prepared to try and understand. The film is an allegory of the mental decline of Jay due to the aforementioned. It is graphic, unerving and gritty. There is nothing pretty about PTS; it can destroy even the most loved of the sufferer (hence the finale). Jay and Shel's lack of selfawareness and undertsanding of Jay's condition preclude a happy ending. Highly recommended viewing, albeit disturbing at times and inevitably sad. If you like this sort of thing then try Vahalla Rising."
