An amazing tearjerker
19 May 2019 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

The perfect example of tearjerker made for home audiences, destined for housewives whilst they iron, cook, clean the house, knot,sew up...But an effective, awesome family drama in which, of course, as I often say, many people could recognize themselves, or will think of folks they have known in the past. Me first, about my mom...awesome performances. That's not the first of the kind and won't be the last. i am surprised that no one has commented it yet.
