Where we are as humans
11 November 2017 | by multiherbSee all my reviews

I admired all the characters in this movie. Love the music and the path of a moment in life.

After reading all the comments I see no one hit the mark. If we could only get away from all this nonsense that means so little we would get the point of the movie.

That point is simple. THINK of where we as humans are and figure out how to make it better.
