Great Film
31 August 2017 | by videogameisfunneySee all my reviews

Watched this at the Sidewalk Film Festival as a movie to pass the time to one I really wanted to see. I was pleasantly surprised! While not the most exciting movie, it was a good story about a man with moral dilemmas, split between being closer to his family or pursuing his passion. I really forgot this was an actual documentary because it was so well made. Really hope this and more great independent films get more attention in the future. Best of luck to the great family in this film!
