Movie synopsis: Director Mark Jackson uses a very concise narration for his drama. He lets the images or just the face of the brilliant Catherine Keener speak for themselves. Keener portrays a war photographer, Lee, who was imprisoned and tortured during her last mission and watched her colleague and friend get shot in front of her. Lee has come to “hide” in a small town in Sicily, a place which is a transition point for illegal immigrants from Africa on their way to Europe. Here she meets an unfortunate immigrant, Hafsia, and decides to help her. The director seemingly stages a cathartic story about mutual help between two lost souls, yet he actually relinquishes the role of a manipulator and leaves the protagonists without absolution.
