A realistic and tense drama

An excellent film that our group appreciated. Suicide in rural communities is a touchy topic but this film deals with it in an interesting way as the director uses his family as the basis of the film. It is a film to open discussions on the struggles in any rural community and is a slice of life film but be warned gets sadder as you go on. In France they had counsellors financial advisors etc at some of the screenings to support farmers and rural worker.
