Written by Sujit R. I saw this film at the Palm Springs International Film Festival in early , and am thrilled that it is finally being released.
It moved me to tears with its touching realities, and i tell everyone i know to see it as soon as possible. It is informative, inspiring, and breath-taking I seldom want to travel anymore, but were the wanderlust bug to bite me again, i think that i would head to that little own in Tennessee, to witness this miracle first-hand.
