This story of a truck driver who transports a Nigerian woman and her child across the border to Switzerland is a touching tale of human connection and how people manage to help against all odds. Well directed, superbly acted and satisfying narration. Small things like the child's musical instrument come to life through the director's touch. The ending is dramatic and joyful much to the liking of the audience. The subtitles have been done well and carry the story without much strain. Fritz Karl as Don Pedro and Clare-Hope Ashitey as Jackie have done their roles memorably with ease and grace. The child has done remarkably well too.
