rated for 0 + years
An ensemble film with an impressive cast and a tension-driven story line: An activist and an architect meet when a social housing complex, that he originally built, needs to be demolished. Based on a theater play by dramatist David Greig who honed his craft at the Sundance Institute Screenwriting Lab, it shows how painful a confl ict between aesthetic, singleminded visions and human needs can become.
