An excellent, thought provoking short film.
13 January 2004 | by (Southern New Jersey) – See all my reviews

I recently watched this film, and was extremely impressed by this based on a true story visualization presented by Mike Lemon. To me, it really showed that life sometimes can defined by a single moment in time when you meet the right person, or that someone special that you may encounter only once in an existence that makes all the difference in you as a person, continuing on with more to strive for. The actors do a solid job in delivering with the portrayal of a gamut of emotions in this story. Bob Bowersox is great as Mike, a confused middle-aged man looking for something more out of life then what it's currently offered. David Duzenski shines as Michael, another lost soul that fines comfort in Bowersox's angelic type character. Overall, a wonderful short film that will warm any heart, regardless of prejudices or preferences, due to it's ability to score with numerous points that many of us should take heed to in our lives, so our days may be a little easier to cope with.
