This is an ensemble piece in which we get involved with the characters. We feel we are watching real flesh-and-blood people go about their lives. It deals with some serious issues but is not without humour or romance.

Is corporate development all bad? What impact has man had on the environment and what is the on-going impact of that habitation? When you are told, "People don't realise how hard it is to invent a tradition", you know this can only be America - but it also film making at its absolute best.
