Set in 1825, Clare, a young Irish convict woman, chases a British officer through the rugged Tasmanian wilderness, bent on revenge for a terrible act of violence he committed against her family.

In a small, blue-collar town in Pennsylvania, a 32-year-old woman's teen daughter goes missing and she is left to raise her infant grandson alone. The story is told over the course of 11 years, from the time her daughter vanishes, through the the trials-and-tribulations of subsequent years looking for closure, leading up the long-awaited discovery of the truth.
But i think this is the essence of what a drama feature should contain. its a slow walk alongside a sad brittle and broken mum and grandmum, as time goes by after losing her only child who disappeared without a trace.
its a film that cotains hope,loss,domestic violence, adultery, bitterness, strive, but most of all love that may take strange ways of expresion, and the main character may fall into the cathegory as the unfortunate among some of the viewers.
its a slow paced film , full of social realism and humanity on many levels, but its well worth a watch thinks the grumpy old man
