Adam Elliot: [narrating over old home movies] That day was my first memory of you. I remember that morning, I had this sword in my hand, and I thought I could take on the world. Then I went out into the world, and I realized something. The real world, and the other people that live in it, are terrifying. And then I saw you standing there and you seemed so... confident. A thumb-sized little princess who had it all figured out.

What Can't Be Undone
22 June 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

A pair of families that has suffered a terrible loss are suddenly pulled into the life of a prime suspect. He has rolled his stolen car and injured himself seriously. He is the guy who the police are looking for and some of the members of the family decide he is guilty. They lock him in a shed and while there, he is murdered. This leads to a couple situations. If he turns out to be innocent someone is a murderer (actually it doesn't matter if he is guilty). Secondly, this leads to big time suspicion and confusion.
