Powerful!
31 August 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

An excellent and powerful wee movie.

The movie lasts 13 min and I think I sat for another 13 min speechless, thinking about the impact of what I had just seen.

It should be shown in schools.

Geoff's other short "Bouncers" is also excellent...hope he will get to make a feature soon.

Knowing Geoff, he will!

It's also worth checking out the books that he writes.

There's an excellent autobiography: "Watch my Back!"

And some brilliant motivational stuff...
