Best of the Nominees
28 February 2016 | by LyneKravSee all my reviews

Every single 2016 Documentary short nominee was worthy. After much deliberation, I picked this one as my winner. Every cop, brother, soldier, mother, sister, wife, victim and human being will feel it. It may even change your mind about the death penalty and would serve as a good spring board to the discussion. Gut wrenching, it could happen to you, everyman story. Warning-there was not a dry eye in the theater, not one. Extra points for the clean, effective animation, a style of which I am usually not a fan, but it won me over. I especially thank Mr. Bill Babbitt for his honesty, bravery and vulnerability as he helps us remember the real Manny. I will carry his story in my heart. Thank you.
