Film captures the extraordinary life of a gifted person...
8 March 2001 | by (Foster City, CA) – See all my reviews



A quality film that any individual with a hunger for the arts would want to include in their viewing landscape.

Amargosa would not exist - were it not for One who gently followed her dream.

A unique 'life-lesson' for both young and old.
