Excellent Film, A must see for all
21 May 2018 | by melindajasmerSee all my reviews

This movie touched my heart and soul. Having a child of my own that experienced bullying, I felt connected. The cast was brilliant, the scenery was mesmerizing. The story line was so intriguing. Living on the Oregon Coast, myself, I felt such a beautiful connection. I am so grateful to have seen this beautiful work of art and cannot wait for Barri Chase's next film. Thank you for this wonderful journey! Next film, Marshfield. You are brilliant and thank you for your beautiful art. xoxo
