A must see to everybody
There is no need to talk about spoilers, this movie ... this story is beautiful.
It is not just a story, it's about a path to anyone desiring to adopt a child.
Moreover, this movie treats the adoption of a ward (pupille) from the beginning and I think it could help many mothers who don't want to keep their child.
The actors carry the movie beyond the initial purpose because it's not a documentary, it's the life of many people all along this adoption.
I have to point out the filmmaking ... I was truly engrossed until the end. Every scene is realistic but I will say no more here, enjoy =)
