It will make you a prepper
10 January 2019 | by PavloxxxSee all my reviews

Even if you are not yet a prepper or a survivalist, after this intelligent drama comedy you will start to stash a few things in tour storage. Well balanced between comedy and drama and close to reality event without action or violent screens to impress, instead you get impressed with the beautiful scenes of Japanese countryside and the full of emotions acting.
