What's wrong, kid? Don't worry, that's not me. That's not me. See, that's an America you don't understand yet. It's bigger than those Sears and Roebuck's catalogs they been giving you, or those movies they're showing you, and your Mighty Mouse comics.

This film is incredibly touching and unusually poignant.
I had the great fortune of seeing this film at The Sundance Film Festival. It was worth the trip just to see this film and hear the director speak of his very personal film. He and his brother have created a world that reminds us of the fragility and strength of the human spirit in a sometimes very cruel world. Within the crevices, he shows us a beauty and humanity that I believe exists in everyone. enjoy this film. It is truly a gift.
