A must see !
12 March 2018 | by christiansaghbiniSee all my reviews

If you have a heart....This is for sure a must see movie! I had watched it a year ago and added a review on Amazon.ca. I watched it again recently with some friends, and i wanted to share my opinion once again. This is a very touchy story about how someone finds themselves molded by their past while trying to live their present. It is a very emotional film. I felt that it was a bitter-sweet story. very beautifully written. Two thumbs up !
