One moment—any single moment—can change an entire life.
It is every parent's greatest fear. Not the death of love, but the death of the one most loved. A glance in the wrong direction, a breath taken that should have been held, a moment's inattention...and life changes forever. Now every familiar space has its ghost, every action a reminder of what has been lost. "It is horrible, but I cannot look at you," says Amanda. And yet the eyes do see, the heart does remember. From the story of these two, parents once and people still, Chilean director and writer Matías Bize (The Life of Fish, Cinequest 2011) has created a film of quiet moments, crystal beauty, poetry and restraint, and something not only bearable, but deeply memorable. - Charlie Cockey
