I must admit, I hate shorts. But this one's an exception. A friend of mine screens content for a film festival here in Los Angeles and I was at his office when he put this one up and I (we) were truly impressed. The production quality, the cast of characters, the locations, sound, editing and direction was all top notch, (not a common thing in shorts). It's a very touching story that was well handled and I think this film will launch the careers of those involved to a whole new level, (being most of the names are unknowns). Gary Busey was a nice touch as well, a very different role for him - (he might want to do more films like this in the future).
