True Comedic Story
27 February 2017 | by tristanh-24900See all my reviews

What could have easily been a bleak outlook on racism and the struggle for acceptance by an African Doctor and his family in a small village turns into a fun and light-hearted comedy the whole family can enjoy.

With its comedic ups and downs, and a standout cast playing the family, this movie is a fun, good-quality time guarantee.
