Heartfelt Short Film. Already recommending to friends and family
20 September 2018 | by brooke-hooverSee all my reviews

Story telling at its finest. I have never seen the sense of impending doom build so beautifully in any other film or literary work. A heartfelt ending and twist. Hope, love, family, staying strong are themes that really resonated with me. The figs trying it all together was a wonderful element. I have already told my loved ones to watch as I know it will resonate with them as well.
