A thoughtful and compelling new film
17 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A thoughtful and compelling new film. Brought to life with by a talented cast and crew, whose passion for film-making and storytelling shines through!

The passion and familial bond this cast and crew shared was evident and came across well on screen. The acting was top notch with each member of the cast, holding their own to maintain a balance of talent, that puts the story they're telling above personal ego's. The production was one of quality and a strive for excellence without the over-indulged pretensions of big budget Hollywood.

I had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know personally many of the cast and crew, and am looking forward to more forthcoming projects from them all.

If you're looking for a gritty inspiring drama, with elements relate-able to anyone who has struggled in their life. Gives the message of 'the will to survive', and to 'fight through the struggles for better days', this would be that film! I highly recommend it to all!
