"...Part ghost story, part psychological drama about a tenement landlord who's "touched" (ie: not quite right in the head) and investigates the disappearance of one of his tenants- who talks to him in the form of her nine-year-old self. Hugh Thompson is marvellous as the lead but he's gifted with a fantastic part." --Nerdvana.com
The story of an unlikely father figure and a nine-year-old girl, this dreamlike, dark and odd film creates a tender but disturbing portrait of human isolation, exploring both sociopathy and the fragile power of human kindness.
