A thoughtful and moving family portrait.
An intimate, autobiographical study of how hard it can be to fit in.
Authentic and memorable...tender and determined.
Cinema makes me value every moment of life with intensity, it makes me observe all those details that this wonderful yet painful world can offer us.
