Genre: Drama
Country: Canada
Duration: 80 min.
Story: Blaise and Nessa are outcast methadone users in a small town that doesn’t offer an easy way out. Each day starts in a long lineup at the tiny pharmacy, then it’s door-to- door begging to cut grass for people who just want them to not exist. At dusk they push their rusty lawnmower up a steep hill and crash in a filthy camper at the edge of town. In this bleakness, Nessa plots an escape, while Blaise lingers closer to relapse, arrest, hospitalization, or worse. Tethered to one another, their getaway dreams are kept on a suffocatingly short leash.
