A real breath of fresh air & a story filled with understanding, healing & catharsis!
1 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The more I see this film the more I appreciate its depth. The story is told simply, clearly and moves at this slightly slower pace which actually allows one to FEEL the effects and impact of everywoman's (everyman's) healing journey to find themselves. Perhaps the appearances differ but the heroine's inner journey and growing awareness is so beautifully and comically portrayed that our own heart is touched and reminded of the inherent healing power within LIFE! Alyson's film serves us all by guiding us to pursue the truth no matter what....for 'the truth shall set you free!' Thankyou for a truly powerful film set against a stunning backdrop of landscapes.
