Surprisingly Great
28 November 2018 | by brunocapouillezSee all my reviews

I watched this film in Australia and wasn't sure what to expect. The story was so simple and well told that I somehow forgot that I had just been introduced to new characters and a place/part of the world I had never been. Truly exceptional indie film... I hope more people get the chance to see.
