The story plays around a 12-year-old Tara, who got dumped by her mother, Jolene (played by Charlize Theron) so she had to stay with James (Jolene's brother). Her uncle now have to take care of her and in a little bit in the dark about it. Tara and James then went on a road trip to get away from the unfortunate circumstances.

Winter can be very bleak to watch. The setting was rather depressing especially after what happened towards the end. If you're looking for a feel good movie, this is the wrong movie for you. I do understand that the movie is dark in its own right. This sort of movie usually premieres at Sundance. I don't know if other people will like it or not. But I do recommend it.

I was born in Toledo City but moved to Lapu-Lapu City at a very young age. Grew up, attended school and now, still lives there. She loves movies and saw a little too many. She also watches a lot of crappy tv shows. For some reason, she thinks its relevant to mention that. She played damath and chess on her primary school years. She won games and was sent to other schools to compete. This has turned out to be completely and utterly useless. Now, she's writing about herself in the 3rd person. What's up with that?! LoL! Peace out!
