most rending question......why?
2 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is a stirring and heart rending portrayal of a teenager struggling to understand why a parent he loved would betray him and his family by committing suicide. all of us wonder why? Is it some sort of neural abnormality that people cannot handle their day to day challenges or is it something deeper, a lack of training and parental encouragement from birth on....that life happens and you have to discipline yourself to push on. How can a teen know....when a parent or other loved one, opts out of the struggle? None of us knows the mind of another, but the fragile and insightful look at this one teen, tells us that the human being is very complex and hard to reach. The relationships shown help us to realize that no matter what....all we have in the end is each other. Staying in touch is the most basic human instinct we have and the most precious. love is the thread for us all.
