Julia (Rose, persuasive) is bound to a wheelchair and her carer Madeleine (Kennedy) is a man chasing bitch pushed by frustration and jealousy towards violence against her vulnerable charge; Eddie (Brumpton) is the faintly mysterious but ultimately angelic local guy who, much to Mad's jealous annoyance, takes a shine to Julia. The third film in de Heer's loose trilogy dealing with the fraught relationship of the marginalised with the world is his bravest yet (it was scripted by Rose, who is herself confined to a wheelchair); often, however, it resorts to fairytale coincidence and contrivance, while the characterisation is cartoon thin and the message heavy handed.
