Reviews and Festivals
"Recommended. Examines the importance of mental health and preventive teaching for children...The great strength of the film is when it begins to promote preventive teachings for children and guiding them towards mindfulness and emotion regulation...Would enhance courses in education, psychology, social science and government courses."
