My two cents
30 November 2018 | by jrneptuneSee all my reviews

After seeing one reviewer that felt is was somehow transgender related I have to question where they got that from.

I am trying to avoid giving away a spoiler but lets just say in this day and age folks have to consider women's health issues and how some women are raised to value their self-esteem based on their appearance.

Although I thought the short was headed one way early on it gave me a twist that I did not see coming.

See it for yourself and decide. I would watch it again for sure. Something I would want my daughters to see and discuss as well.
