Reminds you of Floyd? But it goes both ways!
1 July 2020 | by ashrysterSee all my reviews

This movie was surprisingly good. It was worth the time to watch it. The story is nice and the drama plot is fair.

One of the main lesson (to me) was that most of us, humans, seem to have a problem with the "others": most blues don't like blacks and underestimate them for personal reasons, and also vice versa. Yet there are always exceptions. There are just and fair people who usually play the role of being game changers... I love these people and they are the heroes.

It's good to never judge another human on bases of race or gender or the like. Please be black or be blue, but always be a human.
