As their price war comes to a head, one of them is forced to save the other’s life, leading them to realize the futility of their rift.
Vicki’s follow up film, Broken, was released in 2007. Likewise a well received film, the 1968-set film tells the story of a 14-year-old girl who visits her father in London after four years apart, only to discover he’s been having an affair. Infuriated, she then devises a plan to stop his philandering ways, to devastating consequences.
Vicki’s work often deals with themes of family and loyalty. Though Vicki’s work has since taken a more family-friendly route, she retains her indelible eye for unique stories and down-to-earth flair.
