    The Review

    Can you know the value of something by measuring its worth? Or are value and worth separate things entirely? That is a much deeper question than can be answered in a simple film, yet, this one presents it beautifully in ways that any can understand. The items that we hold dear, those that we want to pass on to the next generation may or may not mean the same to those that the items are passed on to. In this life, however, these items hold great meaning to those who have them. Whether it be a photograph, a memento, or an heirloom… there are memories tied to objects. These memories give these items value, and that is more than enough to carry them forward if you have someone to share those memories with. It’s only upon sharing the memories, that the items will have value to others. There are those items that have a monetary value that is worth a lot to those looking for those particular items, but there is still a history involved. That history could be easily lost or easily passed on. It’s all a matter of perspective. That is what this story shares with us. The value/worth of objects and memories in the lives of 4 families. Those dealing with loss, each in a different way and how they deal with the memories that are attached to what is left behind. To understand a story such as this, you have to be willing to invest part of yourself in watching it. Relating to the individuals on screen is effortless as it draws you into their lives. Should you choose to participate in this, come prepared for an experience unlike any other.
