a story about the human spirit and human triumph.
16 August 2018 | by adityakripalaniSee all my reviews

From the first frame of a film you know that the maker has a grasp over the medium and has made a relationship with it. This is the same with this film. The shots and scenes are never loose or slow and yet the film takes its own time and pulls you into living it at its own pace. The story of a woman from a first world country who is dealing with her own problems and is some kind of an immigrant in her own country, who helps out an immigrant from another country. But what's beautiful about this, as with all great tales is that it destroys all kinds of borders and leaves you with a beautiful human story about how the human spirit triumphs over everything in its way and can be so all encompassing, compassionate, inclusive and brave.
