A must see film!
12 March 2019 | by PuzzledHarrySee all my reviews

This is indeed a must see film on how high level decisions (or non-decisions) affect the every day life of people who have nothing to do with the problem. Wonderfully animated, beautifully told story, very touching and at the same time full of hope and of despair. Not a children's film, but very educational!
