This is a must see movie for all American Women. It shows that although we have different culture styles we often have the same value of family. The passion this mothers shows for her family and dedication she has for "better" is expressed throughout the movie. A child is a child no matter their language. The sub-titles are easy to read; the acting is genuine and the story is moving. It's worth your time to watch.

What a wonderful movie :) Makes one appreciate how very short life can be, and teaches us how to appreciate the everyday blessings that surround us.
