Here’s what the distributor says about their film: (from the producer) It is summer. Thirteen-year-old Janey and her family settle into their isolated cottage for another perfect seaside holiday. Her days are full of swimming and fishing. At night her parents give parties where the adults drink, dance and flirt. Janey is increasingly aware of the cracks in her parents’ marriage. Watching her mother begin an affair with a visiting photographer, she starts to discover her own sexuality. Janey decides to grow up quickly. Too quickly…

Viewer Comments
Positive—Quality New Zealand film. Not a Christian film, but a viewer from a Christian perspective sees how, no matter how idyllic the setting (here a family holiday at the beach) and how “normal” people may seem, what is going on inside people can destroy them. Includes abuse of alcohol and a young girl pursuing a sexual experience with an older man, but without glamour and with devastating consequences. Sobering, moving, realistic portrayal of lost people. Recommended for adults only.
