A must see young adult movie!
28 September 2017 | by susanfogarty-84927See all my reviews

This young adult movie is a must see. The story of teenagers coming of age, and facing the challenges of modern youth. Throw in romance, a broken city - post earth-quake and you have a challenging movie that is watchable from beginning to end. Clever writing and direction, wonderful acting. Don't miss it.
