Very good movie!!

This is a touching story about two brothers who struggle to stay together after a tragic accident orphans them! While the brothers make their way to the only possible place available that might keep them together, a place called "Boys Town" Father Flanagan and the boys already entrusted to him follow every step these boys make untill they finally make their.

(There is no indication that this movie is factual, however, deliberately presents itself as being possible!) <Tear Jerker!>
