From the Director, my mother has made me a stronger person because she has shown me how to act in life-treat people the way you want to be treated. My film is about how she went through so much in life, yet still remains positive. I hope people understand that life is not all about your own feelings- you have to make an attempt to understand other peoples feelings too.
