Not a bad way to spend $2.99 - Low and Clear film

The film follows two friends who have drifted apart that reunite on a trip steelheading in BC.  On the one hand you have J.T. who is trying to lead a "normal" life,whom most will identify with, including a close relationship with a woman, getting a better house, and trying to find time somehow to be a better fisherman. and Xenie the mountain man, whom I thought was going to turn out to be a dirt bag French existentialist, but really is a madman in the finest sense of the word.

This film goes on beyond the hackneyed metaphors to illustrate the prices to pay for each lifestyle.  Just have to get beyond the 9 minute mark.  Trust me.  Spend the $2.99 to rent it from Youtube.  You might get a bit depressed, but you will come out of it 24 hours later better for it.
