A telling tale of an unlikely couple packaged in the most unlikely manner. The juggling of tragedy and humor is very impressive. A wonderful experience. Thank you.

well made film... love and understanding can develope between any two people and that is important and we need to value it rather than getting stuck in stereotypical images and understanding of love and caring. Message given very beautifully in a uncommon setting and story....
