From living a normal life to surviving homelessness in the city of Miami, Peter is a victim of the turbulent US recession during late 2000's. A drama based on true events. A heartbreaking chronicle witnessing a drastic character transformation when he is exposed to the harsh cruelties the streets reveal.Written by
This movie came to me from amazon prime, it was one of those watch next kind of things. I decided to watch the trailer 1st and although intriuging i was still a little leary. I am normally a sci-fi/fantasy or action movie guy. So anyway i ended up deciding to give it a go not expecting too much and possibly thinking i would be finding something else before the movie was finished.
Within the 1st 5-10 minutes i had already shed tears for the lowliest of protagonists. Turn after turn of hurt truly leaving me in sorrow, if not only for the fact that I yes I was somehow part of the problem. It cut me deeply with self introspective and introspective on the human condition. What does it mean to truly break, what does it mean to be truly broken, and what are the consequences. Not just for the sufferer but for humanity as a whole. Is this truly who we are? Because this is not where I would hope humanity would be.
Its a story of tragedy and sorrow from the very 1st shot. It follows the sufferage of those we pass daily but seem to slip between the cracks. It is a story of immense power, and quite possibly the best movie I have ever watched. Just for the story alone. And somehow possibly a movie I never want to see again, just for the pain involved.
I would recommend this to anyone looking for something to watch. It just might change the way we treat people. I know it has changed mine, I will no longer pass by with blind indifference.
And I'm still shedding tears after its all over and review completed.
