CRITIC REVIEWS:​

100% Fresh critics consensus on Rotten Tomatoes

"Artfully shot on an iPhone, this low-key drama is an original variation of the British crime movie. Where the narrative goes is powerfully moving,

stirring glimmers of healing into a painful situation, as each character struggles to be the decent person they know they are inside." - Rich Cline
