A young up and coming artist in New York city has his life and dreams forever altered when the tragic events of 9/11 take the lives of his two best friends and he accepts guardianship of the couple's two young daughters. Now eleven years later, and teaching art at an elementary school, he raises the girls as if they were his own, but the financial grind to live in NYC is too much, so he decides to take the girls away from the only place they've ever called home and move back to Buffalo where he grew up. This "non-traditional" family now faced with change, new surroundings, and a new journey, must learn how to adjust to this new life, while trying to find themselves along the way.
No idea why the critics gave it a 5/10 stars! It's not what I expected and a great film with drama, comedy, and a whole lot of heart. At a distance, some of my male friends deemed it a "chic lick", but after watching it, they stood corrected and thought it was an excellent movie. The people in this film, both behind the scenes and in front of the camera, convey how the tragedy of 9/11 can affect a person and their loved ones. Furthermore, it shows that life doesn't turn out the way you expect it to, how humans persevere, and embrace the silver lining during hard times.
