| A beautiful example of carefully crafted character building
Everyone of these characters has depth and is very well textured.

There really wasn't a minor character. There were extras of course but the small selection of characters each had at least two scenes showing 2 different traits that added richness to themselves and to what they had to offer to the primary story line.

Even among the films available to fans of the 2016 festival this one stands out.

A better example of character building I have not seen at this festival. Every film maker has something to learn from watching this film.

So very well done - thank you.
