wonderful multi-character film need to be seen by more people
17 January 2011 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Episodic story of several people a musician who can never get anywhere (his ex- is a singer on the rise), a man who makes paper houses for the dead, a young man who's mother tends the graves of the dead and how makes money by dressing in a tiger costume. How they interact and how their lives spin out is the film.

Both funny and sad the film explores the quest for us all to find a place of our own- not just in a place to live but a place to dwell in ourselves. While the film takes a little while to get firing on all cylinders the film will move you once it does. Its all about the characters and by the end they will be some great new friends.
