The basic story involves a once revered female singer (Rena Owen) who is trying to find a way to continue with her life with love and professional satisfaction, and a male prostitute, (Dean O'Gorman) who has never really cared about much of anything, brought together, in Auckland, by acquaintance, and find passion, but also pain. Will they discover a new life - when love comes? I found this film to be less than it was meant to be. Some good performances, but short of the mark. It was an official selection of the Toronto and Sundance festivals.

Censor Rating: R16 - Review rating: C+
