    Michelle Williams plays an absolutey fascinating character. I found the whole story to be true to real life and a parallel of the real life struggles of so many in our country. I would say the only problem I find with the storyline is you were left wanting to know more, but life doesn\'t always end up in a pretty bow either and the deirector left you to decide what ever happens to her character.

    Powerful low budget film about love and its bonds. Similar to Umberto 'D in effect (seems to be a copy of Umberto 'D).
