Engrossing and with a clear message to convey.  The short film starts with a highly anxious father who is furious that his daughter is a lesbian.  His words, "It's not natural", seems to sum up his opinions well.  But the son offers some enlightenment for the father.  The succeeding scenes feature the daughter dressed  as a boy going into a club, socializing with young people like her and getting amorous with another girl. She seems to be having a great time and amidst people who seem to be like her. It's good to know that the ending, which viewers initially sense to be a negative one, ended on a positive note.  This just goes to show that there is finally acceptance on the father's part. Musical scoring generally commendable and the shots well-framed. Do check this out!

  • It is cool how at the beginning, the film is shot in black and white and there is dialogue. After that though, the film changes to colour and there is music playing throughout until the very end.
