When I review a movie, I look for issues that a family with traditional values can discuss from the picture. This is a rather obscure Canadian movie so it is pretty hard to find - maybe looking on Amazon.ca would be more productive - that looks at the matter of sickness and death from the point of view of a fifteen-year-old girl, Tamara. Her artist father moves them into a house where the teenage son of the owners had died of leukemia. Shortly after moving in, Tamara's mother is diagnosed with tuberculosis and has to leave the family for a sanitarium.

So, Tamara and her younger brother and sister face a number of issues in this movie - moving to a new location, going to a new school, dealing with a serious illness, etc. It happens that the neighbors across the road from them are (supposedly) Baptists so Tamara soon is faced with the issue of religion. [Her mother is an avowed atheist, but wise enough to let Tamara decide for herself whether to go to church or not.] For Evangelical Christian families, this family presents some interesting issues. The kids swear like a military sailor. What kind of Christian testimony is that? When Tamara starts to pick up some of the language, her father in no uncertain terms let her know she is not to use that kind of language. Is it really by their fruits that one knows the Godly person, not their religious doctrines?

There is one delightful scene where the three girls and two boys go skinny-dipping in the farm pond. (My father grew up skinny-dipping, my wife and I did as well, all our kids did and now my grandchildren are continuing the tradition, so, of course, I could relate.) This is not an erotic scene - for Tamara and her siblings, it is just the way they swam.
