| First film I know of exploring this delicate subject matter in depth.
This film, for the first time I believe, explores the effects of a trauma which intrudes itself upon the apparently otherwise smooth and fulfilling relationships of the lead characters ), and the ripple effects of that trauma on their relationships with family and friends.

The trauma could be in many forms, not necessarily the one depicted here. Our lives, seemingly secure as they flow along, can be brutally interrupted by many events -- devastating and crippling accidents, unexpected and life-threatening illness, etc etc etc. Not only is devastation wreaked upon the subject, but tangentially upon all his/her relationships. This film makes us clearly aware of this fact.

Now, the healing and rehabilitation and recovery must hopefully and painfully take place. How far can one come back? How can one become better, stronger, than prior to the trauma? This film gently, patiently, helps us see that one need not remain a victim forever! One can overcome! Not easily, not without scars, but with dignity and self-pride.

A bonus is the music score. It is beautiful and supportive, yet never intrusive. It is in exquisite unity with the film and a joy to experience.
