The life unlived.
by Jason Stone

This immensely moving film out of Canada examines a junction in a young man's life. In one scenario, a heart condition which has affected him since birth goes unnoticed and untreated, and his prognosis is not great when he collapses in front of his school. In the other scenario, where his condition is diagnosed, early and ongoing medical intervention ensures he is able to live a full life.

It's an unusual version of a familiar trope, and, especially in this magnificent director's cut, made to feel very fresh by the visceral quality of Henry Scholfield's extraordinary vision.

The soundtrack helps but most of the power is provided by the visual narrative which grabs our attention right from the start and holds us in its grip right through to the relief of its happy conclusion. This is a rollercoaster ride of emotions ultimately ending on a very hopeful note, and it enables parents to feel that one of their worries may be assuaged by the work being funded by the advertised charity.
