Amazing Film!
7 April 2013 | by josiecellonewsSee all my reviews

Jesse Quinones and his team have produced an awe-inspiring, touching, strong film!

From the character of the little boy.. so vulnerable and open,.. to the drug-addicted but at times loving temporary step-dad, each person and their stories are so real, so very believable. A strong range of emotions are invoked, the watcher feels part of these folks' lives, and ultimately, wisdom and personal growth reign in each of the main characters. Very real, very full of beauty, .. and very stylized with Miami scenarios. (It took me right back to my early adults days when I lived there.) A must see for adolescents, adults struggling to overcome addictions, folks of Jewish and other faiths, and just plain old Anyone who wants to see a poignant and wonderfully made film!
