CGiii Comment

For originality, it wins hands down - quite possibly the only lesbian/bisexual short film made in Inuktitut .

It certainly makes a case for polygamy...pity, the catholics put an end to it...replacing it with buggering priests.

The world would certainly be a happier place...with polygamy and without catholics!
