I don't watch too many novellas because most of them follow the same cookie-cutter plan but this one blew me away. The story is so smart and believable. It's got great scenery, beautiful music, and if you love coffee like I do, it's a wonderful insight on everything from how coffee is cultivated to how it's marketed. The actors are all excellent. You really root for the good guys. And, although the characters are fictional, the heroine is someone you can look up to. She was my inspiration at the age of 20 to go out and get a job and be a professional! I know there are many other memorable novellas out there, but for my lifetime... this is the one.
