In New York City, a young girl is caught in the middle of her parents' bitter custody battle.

A very affecting story with an incredible performance by Onata Aprile (Maisie). Avoids sensationalism and slowly Angela subtly shows the devastating (but unacknowledged) emotional impact of adult neglect of their children when they become so focused on their relationship struggled, fights, and separations. The whole movie is portrayed from the perspective of Maisie and it is impossible to resist empathising with her plight even though a child of this age cannot articulate what they are experiencing. This movie should be compulsory viewing for any couple with a child who is dealing with divorce/separation. Childhood should not have to be like this. Unfortunately, it too often is.
