What if you had gone left instead of right
12 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

Have you ever wondered, "What if.....?" This movie addresses the possibility of making choices in life. Hanna is a successful news reporter with a bright career ahead. What would have happened if she had made other choices at the beginning of her career? This is one of my favorite Christmas movies, with a bittersweet ending.
