This film delivers a very special meaning about friendship. When a teenage girl gets separated from her tour group, a local boy steps in to help. Soon, they discover that both their fathers have passed away. This film shows how people from different places may have similar problems. You are never alone in dealing with these human things. I like the connection between the two actors which is quite humorous at times. It flows well and is unpredictable, which I like. Any child who has lost a family member will relate to this film, but others will also. It's not just about losing someone. It's about connecting with others. The sets and locations are ideal for the storyline. The film is well shot with clear audio and excellent background music. It has a strong message about cultural differences and similarities that I really relate to. I especially like that the director has the characters speak in their own languages, because it allows the film to come off as real. And the sub-titles are well done. I strongly recommend this film to ages 8 to 18 and give it 4 out of 5 stars. Reviewed by Lizeth G. and Julie S., KIDS FIRST! Jurors.
