Excellent Film!
12 February 2016 | by carolyn-20952See all my reviews

I loved this movie, the story line, the actors and actresses and most definitely the music! I love emotional movies and this one did not fail to deliver. The depth of emotions were adequately displayed by a brilliant cast. I hope and pray the director (Jamal Hill) continues to provide and create more fabulous movies for the world to enjoy. It's a wonderful watch and I highly recommend it! You have real empathy for the actors and the situations that they find themselves in. What I took away from the movie was you never really, really know people. Treachery, lies, deceit, dishonesty, are traits we all possess at one time or another. But this film builds on the dreams and experiences of the characters and eloquently displays what can, does and will happen if you work hard and focus. Fabulous film. Definitely looking forward to Jamal Hill's next endeavor!
