Late Fragment's multi-plot, non-linear and interactive narrative lets audiences discover the stories of three strangers. Faye, Kevin and Théo are drawn together as participants in a restorative justice process, where victims and offenders share their stories. Emotionally broken from the violence they have experienced, they turn to the restorative justice process in hopes of finding wholeness, balance, forgiveness, redemption and a sense of safety. Three story lines interconnect, and this unique cinematic experience allows the viewer to "play" a creative and interactive role by weaving in and out of the film's story lines "whenever they choose" by clicking the remote.
"May be the most groundbreaking of the films screened at TIFF this year" -- POV MAGAZINE
"There are 380 available 'clicks,' allowing for billions of story trajectories. So complex is the behind-the-scene structure of the film that an expert in matrix algebra was consulted" -- GLOBE & MAIL

Ok so with this DVD you get to choose paths. Not like those books we had as kids, as the clicks don't change the story. This is important to know. What you do choose is how you view the story lines, from what perspectives, in what order. The first, second, maybe even the fourth time you watch it - you will not get the whole story. The story is broken up into so many little scenes from each story line (Theo, Faye, and Kevin). When you click, it changes to another scene, and it's exciting after the first few watches when you still get new scenes that digs you deeper into the story.
If you choose not to click, you'll eventually get to little loops in the story - a few seconds switching over from one person to the next where you MUST choose. This happens when the people are in Offender/Victim therapy. This gives you a chance to come back to the hub of the story, and choose another storyline.
The acting is great, I loved it. Believable, emotional, tender, and at times extensively disturbing. There are very disturbing scenes so this is definitely not for kids. I would recommend this movie to anyone who wants something different out of a DVD experience, to anyone who likes installation art, and to anyone who likes interactive entertainment over "press play and watch till the end".
