Looks to be a great film
15 January 2017 | by Myles TeagueSee all my reviews

The premise of the film is extremely relatable, I'm sure most people have been in a situation where they are the odd one out. Bullying is such a relevant topic for this age -- we see more and more children being harmed not only by real life bullies, but on the internet as well. The beautiful thing about life and the world is that there's someone for everyone out there, as the soul was made in pairs. As someone still looking for his pair, it's good to find inspiring films in such a negative world. I also think it's really good to see a story about people that don't look like they just came out of a magazine. James Choi is excellent to work with, knowledgeable and a talented filmmaker. Peace, love, and blessings for the film.
