Andray wrote – I watched this last night at like 3 am and can recommend it 100000%. It’s a beautiful story, filled with laughter, tears, and everything in between. Watching this not only made me feel like a part of this family, but it also made me think about just how much my own loved ones mean to me. Also, as expected, the filmmaking is on point.

I know Justin, and after watching his documentary last night, I felt like it needed to be shared. The story, editing, and the making of this documentary is so beautiful, I’m happy to see people are enjoying it.
