Ben Morton: [narrating] There are mountain top experiences in our journey through this world. Those *rare* and lucid moments when *everything* seems right and *anything* is possible.

Heartwarming message, but romantic drama falls flat.
10 March 2017 | by sam-97903See all my reviews

This story focuses on the relationship between a loving couple -- and how they weather the ups, downs, and unexpected curve balls life throws at them.

Although there's a tragic twist (which drives a sad character to destruction in a few scenes), overall it's a family-focused film with a solid marriage at its center.

Language is limited to one "oh God" said in a heated moment, and while the main characters are very affectionate.

The message of the movie'd be: Keep going, no matter what kind of hardship comes your way. But the execution is flawed, and there's little here that makes Ben and Ava's story truly compelling to watch.
