...start with too much blood and a crime but this movie is not a thriller; is about the relationships and the feelings.
Normally people suppose things about the other; sometimes are correct but mostly do not.
The plot has some errors to settle in couple of turns in the story but again, this is not the main goal of this movie.
The acting here is pretty consistent and demonstrate that with a tight budget you can make it possible.
