Love and Hate-- such a timely picture
7 February 2018 | by gbower-63363See all my reviews

I saw Burden at Sundance, and was captured with how poignant this film is. The tale is an incredible story--and has really effected me on many levels. Even though the story is 20 years old--the lesson is very timeless.
