This film was just magical! It was made up of most Tragedies young people go through in the world today. I think the name of the movie is fantastic aswell. Because it fits the end of the story, that you can fly away from your troubles. It definitely one that is worth watching and if you liked this one you should watch where the heart is because its more or less similar. Two young sisters watch their abusive father beat up their mother for the slightest thing. Soon he kills himself and the 3 girls move away. But the mother develops a drinking problem and takes everything out on her two young daughters. One of the young daughters starts visiting a black woman in secret as her mother is set against it. Can Miss Zora help the mother put her life back on track?
