| The Darkness within us will eitherr rise or drown us all...
This film does well at doing many things at once and that is the ability to show love in its rarity and also to show the darkening depths of fear itself. Fear from conditioning over time...This film show's that you can move forward and be free from prior "fears" that make us all incapable at times, however the main characters all join together in this film to say that there is love and hope after all. This Film is for adults who want to share the realism of this life and that includes fantasy and foul of the every day life/reality. But at the end of our foul days, what do we look for? We look for peace of mind and love that understand us as we understand love. This film shows the very in competence of all us on a daily basis but shows us that through the darkness we will always find the light. Truly beautiful film that tells a very unique story but not so far off from reality story..where we all want to fit in and feel loved.
