I can't remember how i stumbled on this movie, but I am really glad I did. This movie was such a joy to watch and was very moving. In fact i purposely registered to IMDb to give it a good rating and a review to support this movie. If you choose to watch it, you won't be sorry! For an independent film on a budget, the quality of the cinematography was great, as was the acting, and everything else, there's so much talent put into this film. Jacqueline Kim did a wonderful job at acting in this film in her portrayal of Gwen and Samantha Kim as her daughter Jules. And Jacqueline Kim and Jennifer Phang wrote such a moving and beautiful movie.
