Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

A delightful, peaceful film but the final cutting was a bit disappointing; it was probably rushed. Audience all loved it otherwise.

Gentle, poignant look at an island community who use main psychology to change and oil mogul's mind about buying the island to drill for oil. Lovely film for all ages - little bit of swearing
