Not for me
18 March 2020 | by pub-21See all my reviews

Boring, poor acting, bad production are some of the reasons for my poor rating. If you haven't see it yet don't bother unless your favourite genre is "B" Grade sob stories that will never make it in prime time.

Don't recommend and certainly won't be watching again.
