Priceless memories about past times
27 January 2019 | by halyas-46448See all my reviews

The movie brings in time where parents were young and alive, sun brighter and life easier. I would also wish to get my mum out from daily routine. To some ice cream and trips... That movie awake best feelings and memories. And memories are what ultimately remain in our life.
