The Song of Sway Lake

This film had a unique feel to it that I found refreshing.  The story makes it clear that each character has some kind of struggle but it is never quite clear where the conflict originates.  Is it supernatural?  Is it familial?  Something else?  While the film does meander a bit in the middle I thought the end was true to the story.
