Located off the coast of Indonesia, the Australian territory of Christmas Island is inhabited by migratory crabs travelling in their millions from the jungle towards the ocean, in a movement that has been provoked by the full moon for hundreds of thousands of years. Poh Lin Lee is a "trauma therapist" who lives with her family in this seemingly idyllic paradise. Every day, she talks with the asylum seekers held indefinitely in a high-security detention centre hidden in the island's core, attempting to support them in a situation that is as unbearable as its outcome is uncertain. As Poh Lin and her family explore the island's beautiful yet threatening landscape, the local islanders carry out their "hungry ghost" rituals for the spirits of those who died on the island without a burial. They make offerings to appease the lost souls who are said to be wandering the jungles at night looking for home.

Most boring movie (of many) I have seen this year.
Most boring movie (of many) I have seen this year. No wonder it got nominations at Tribeca: the more insignificant, unappealing, lacking of direction, acting, photography and of everything normally contributes to the architecture of a good movie, the more acclaimed by self appointed intellectuals that need to distinguish themselves by so called common mainstream movie audience. The message is: I highly reward this (insignificant ugly) movie because I am an expert, you don't because you're a bumpkin. Migrations of people in modern era is not like crab walkabout. Modern States have rules, laws, cultures that need to be respected. Australia gave a great lesson to other cults and cultures immigrates who wanted to enter the Country and set up new rules based on their specific needs. Multiculturalism is b...sht. You enter a Country, you accept the rules, you don't like them , you're free to leave. Right winged intellectuals (Tribeca to name first that comes to my mind) speak of freedom and love, since speaking is easy and free. No frontiers. no restrictions...free immigration (also because exclusive housing compounds have strict entry checkpoints). This movie is a waste of audience's time. It is not a documentary, it is not a movie, it is not poetical, it is jus bloody boring. Only nice part is Poppy!
