    Bravo! This film was very well done and shows that we all have challenges, yet with allowing help from others, it doesn’t need to be so disabling.

    Made me realize we all need help some more than others but this made me think … a positive outlook.

    The author catches the fact that even though people are different we are all the same and should not judge people. Beautiful film.
