Excellent universal story!
11 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

What an excellent film this is. This movie touches on universal issues such as tragedy, grief, love and forgiveness. While the characters were of Ethiopian decent, it shows that we all hurt, grieve, love and forgive just the same. This film speaks to all cultures around the world. Job well done in telling this story. I wish you well!
