Sweet and funny
22 March 2019 | by david7118See all my reviews

I caught this short at the SXSW festival and I fell in love with it. The story gives us a look into the lives of two Syrian men who work in a bodega and two young girls who come by to try to buy beer using a fake ID. But the story is so much more than just that. It's funny and sweet and dramatic and you get invested in these peoples lives and want the best for all of them. If this plays at a film festival near you do yourself a favor and watch it.
