Beautiful film that probably hits close to home for many people...
12 August 2018 | by melb-21636See all my reviews

For having such a small budget, it's a wonder how this film could have been pulled off! The music and scenery was beautiful. And the message was so powerful -anyone with any kind of family estrangement could relate to this. Con is both loved and admired in the film- hated by those who can't see past Con's negative behaviors, and admired by those who see the good and gold in him. How true is that for anyone who's experienced extreme trauma as a child? Nicely done :)
