Goofs

Jeff's accident is ruled to be the result of drunk driving because of the presence of alcohol in his car. However, in the case of all traffic accidents resulting in death, thorough investigations are always conducted, including toxicology reports. Jeff would undergo a mandatory autopsy to determine the exact cause of death and therefore it would be known that he was not intoxicated at the time of the accident. See more »

How valuable is a human's life?
10 April 2017 | by ahmetkozanSee all my reviews

I watched the last episode and finished the series. My current mood is depressive and my feathers thorns. It was really impressive. The drama brings great sorrows to the audience, bringing sadness. It completely changes the way people think about their behavior towards the environment. We have behaviors that cause negative effects that we do not care about people we interact with, and that is to realize that our behavior can be one of the giant pieces of fist that are thrown into the life of that person. The worst do not care about it. So I always thought it was important to pay attention not to break your heart in this life. It is very important to act like human beings. This series is for everyone to watch. Especially parents. The biggest impact of the series was that I could start looking at the people around me with less prejudice. It is strongly recommended. 8/10
