CGiii Comment

This is what happens when you show...rather than tell!

Imagine living your life like this...many have done so and many will continue to do so.

Questions - rather than judgments - are raised...mainly: If you cannot be true to yourself - then, why does faith matter? preaches and expects truthfulness. Something to ponder.

A quietly remarkable film.
