Synopsis: Two perpetrators of a hit-and-run car accident - who have never been caught - once again mark the day of their victim's death, and find themselves continuing to struggle with the guilt of their shared crime.
As Shane rightly says, living with guilt is the worst punishment. Prison could be better to that. The emotions of Patricia, Cass & Shane, each one of them fighting their own battle is very well presented. One is able to very well visualize what would have happened on November 14th in spite of nothing much being said about it. That’s the win for the script.
The insecurity of Cass to face the reality and the inability of Shane to make decisions for himself, to make the confession to Patricia are very well portrayed. Thought the end gives a chill, it also creates a thirst to want more from the script. This leaves the reader with a curiosity to know how the writer would have concluded.
