Synopsis: A gentle film about Camille Baker, a conservative, literacy professor at a Christian University. Camille is in a long term, flat relationship with Martin, another Professor at the same university. Camille meets free-spirited Petra at a laundrette. Petra is immediately taken with Camille and opens her to feelings she didn’t know she had.

Although this reads like a cheesy Lesbian converts straight woman story, it's quite different. It is a gentle story of love and a woman who finally finds herself and of course the consequencies of her self discovery.

Beautifully shot with great use of the carnival scene, this film leaves you with a lump in your throat and a great grin on your face. Includes a very romantic and convincing love scene.

Beautifully done. Definitely 10 out of 10
