IDEA: A boy deals with intense guilt after accidentally ending the life of a friend. Takes place during the massive garbage strike in Glasgow, Scotland in 1973.
BLURB: Beautifully ugly. Dank, dark, grim, and poetic… perfectly rendered and sturdily shot, mesmerizing compositions of lonely children searching for escape and company within a soul-draining palette of muddy grays and browns, guilt and pain. As they wrestle with diminishing hope in an excess of overwhelming alienation, the torment of bleakness sets in, yet the dream of release prevails, ever so softly.
