Our good friend Larsen Jay of Knoxville, TN, was the Executive Producer of this amazing film, and we were lucky enough to be at the premiere and meet some of the cast and crew. As a geriatric social worker, the film was especially moving to me, and I highly recommend this as a must see. It is PG-13 so plan a date night with your special someone soon!
