Overview

A young boy draws on the power of magic in order to unite a noble healer and a wounded warrior in Toronto filmmaker Charles Officer's poetic feature directorial debut. Jude (Karen LeBlanc) is a City Hospital nurse afflicted with sickle-cell anemia. Her twelve year old son Ciel (Daniel J. Gordon) longs for her to get well, and begins casing a series of healing spells in hopes that they will ease her suffering. Into Jude and Ciel's life stumbles Silence (Clark Johnson), an underground fighter who has just taken a pummeling. Silence was in need of stitches, and Jude was the nurse on duty at the time he was admitted. An imposing figure who's just as taciturn as his name suggests, Silence is still shaken by the recent death of his trainer - a man who was as much a father figure as he was a coach. Not only has the loss shaken Silence emotionally, but it's also forced him to take on some heavy new responsibilities. Perhaps if Ciel could bring this pair together, Silence could find the emotional support he so desperately needs, Jude could have a companion to keep her company during those dark days of illness, and a young boy will finally have a protector for himself and his ailing mother.
