This film is a gem for those who can see it
31 January 2018 | by gabrielamignoneSee all my reviews

This film show us that you can be the master of your life if you dare to take risks. Two twin brothers chose two different ways to overcome the obstacles of their lives. It's beautifully made, a song of hope and a lesson about tolerance and personal growth.
