This should have been an Oscar contender!
8 January 2019 | by jrneptuneSee all my reviews

A wonderful short with a message everyone can take to heart. Especially those that are at a disadvantage in society. Don't let the lies of those that attack or berate you turn you into the very thing they want you to be.

That it was a student film made it all the more powerful. I see great things coming from those involved.
