Jackie is your 17 old average teenage girl, filled with new emotions and fresh doubts about the world in which she lives. But she also carries a secret that she cannot share; she’s deeply in love with her brother Matthew. But Matthew, who doesn’t share Jackie’s feelings, has his own life to live; he’s heading off to college and has finally met his first girlfriend. Dealing with the controversial theme of incest within a close knit, yet strangely detached family dynamic, Sallitt's film relies far more on the strength of its character development than it does on gaudy sensationalism to push home his message.
