A decent reminder: Life is hard, but let's be courageous!
17 April 2019 | by actress_twSee all my reviews

Following the dual point of view from the filmmaker (- as a documentary director as well as a refugee), we, far from the war zone, are taken into a long journey named uncertainty, with the filmmaker's own family on the run towards EU. With its main characters full of love and determination, and regardless of the imbalance on the film's technical side, this docu-drama is simply so engaging not just because of the whole run/adventure being dramatic and suspenseful in nature, but because the filmmakers are deeply honest, reflective, and COURAGEOUS. A decent reminder to all of us --Life is hard, but let's be courageous!
