In Watt's first feature-length film, she examines our fears of dying and death. Artist Meryl (Clarke) is constantly imagining disasters (depicted in animated sequences), but then she witnesses a real tragedy--a man getting killed by a train. Local photographer Nick (McInnes), who's just been told he has cancer, takes a picture of the man's anguished widow, which is printed on the newspaper's front page along with reporter Andy's (Hayes) somewhat brutal story. Nick and Meryl make a tentative connection while struggling with fear, loneliness, hope, and forgiveness. The secondary characters and their problems (including an unplanned pregnancy) are a distraction but the film's overall quirkiness tends to work well.
