An emotionally charged film touching a piece of all hearts.
15 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

This is a real life drama that people face in relationships every day, seeking answers to serious questions, and trying to find that magic to maintain a lifelong friendship with the one you love. The story is funny, emotional, hopeful, sad, and pulls at your heart from all directions. It is an easy watch and the actors are all top shelf! I felt like I was on a trip with these people in their vacation cabin in Michigan. Such a delightful film! Thanks to Michael Glover Smith for not only writing a thought provoking film but also his direction of the actors that pulled off a fantastic story!
