Impressed that directors Maritza Brikisak & Christina Tsialtas were able to make a indie film on their budget, kudos! Story is pivotal around Ms. Sophie-Maritza Brikisak , who brought together people in need. The need filled care and hope in her home that helped many lives with a short insight of their stories. Her son Bobby & her protector Blue, her support system . Unusual drop in Alice, snuck in by Amber & her unwilling accomplice Maud. Huevo & magic man although pained contribute in their way. Sophie offering not only a roof over their heads, therapy and what we all need love & care. Lovely film if too short. It teased us with storylines I would like to know more about. Even the bad guys in their unhinged car made me dislike them. Good work on all fronts . Good job by all of you , the dog & cute kid. Incredulous that a feature length film was done well on a tight budget. Kudos again!
