Overview

Given the choice between staying clean and getting a job or going to prison, a hardened and heavily tattooed felon goes to work for a wealthy Palm Beach septegenarian in director/co-writer Dan Chinander's tale of a most unlikely friendship. Victoria is all about attitude, and her Maori-like facial ink lets the world know that in no unconditional terms. Now forced to stand before a judge and plead for her freedom, the temperamental young rebel is forced to accept a position as a helpmate for Althea Jaffrey - an ageing woman whose elegantly refined image belies her open-minded belief system. Over the course of their time together, Victoria and Althea forge an unbreakable bond that finds the tough-as-nails twenty-something finally revealing the painful secrets of her dark past. On the surface these two may seem to share little in common, but they are kindred souls at heart and only through the power of Althea's forgiveness will young Victoria learn to break free from the binds of her past.

    WOW! I didn't expect this to be much of a film coming from an indie film. I was wrong! GREAT FILM and it's up there with the professionalism of a Hollywood film!

    At first I was expecting a low budget, poor acting indie film. After the first ten minutes I realized that I was wrong. This film is magnificent, not only visually but the acting and music. It sure is nice to see movies out there that still tell a good story. Did I forget to mention that this is a thinking film as well? I can't seem to get this story out of my mind. Anyone who wants to laugh, cry and laugh you have to see this film. And watch it a few times and I can bet you will see something new every time.
