Every second counts!
15 August 2018 | by M1racl3sHapp3nSee all my reviews

An hymn to the importance and, at the same time, fragility of life. Every single moment has been carefully planned to weaved together a multitude of strands which will only make sense at the end. Every human being play a fundamental role in the game of life: never forget that! This film is a reality check to remind us that we are here for a higher purpose even if we can't yet see it. If you are looking for an inspirational story, look no further: a must watch!
