A convent, a nun, a drug dealing mother and a nigh constantly masturbating drugtaking uncle, are some of the characters in this film. At the heart of the story are a pair of siblings, children in an explicitly adult world. The film’s narrative is both harrowing in its gritty portrayal of destitution, and miraculous in its portrayal of an act in unselfish and altruistic sacrifice.
