Excellent! -> A MUST SEE!!!
27 May 2002 | by srmccarthySee all my reviews

Are you Irish? Interested in world events? Enjoy stories about war? Concerned about human relationship? Interested in world peace? Guardian of a child? Like Children? Interested in social research? ....Heck -> Like violence, blood & war!? Like TRUE STORIES THAT CHANGE LIVES!!!!!!!!!!!!

If ANY of the above is true, then THIS MOVIE IS FOR YOU!!!!

If you have a heart or if you think you might, please watch this wonderful movie! This is based upon true events!

Four children are taken from their hate filled world in Northern Ireland (these being mixed religions, both Protestant and Catholic), brought to America, placed in homes (Cath. w/ Prot.) and given the chance (without adult influence) to make their OWN decision as to who is friend or foe!!! You Can't miss this one!
