Emotional.
7 February 2019 | by finesherrySee all my reviews

Watched this the other day, came across it by chance. Well, they crammed more feelings, emotions and heartfelt sadness etc in the 13 minutes or so this plays for than you would get in a 2 hour dramatic movie.

Only wished it was a full movie I wanted to watch more of it, a very emotional short film. Well worth a view.
