This movie is so sweet, must watch
24 February 2020 | by MR_HeracliusSee all my reviews

Heart-warming tale of a little girl who wants to be sure that everyone is warm at Christmas. What I like most is how the writer has managed to present the feelings and the thoughts of the girl - they are so natural.
