    watching this, i was already aware that it drew its plot from make way for tomorrow, a film that had me quite emotional so i knew this would be an onion-cutting session as well. if you were to ask me, this hit harder since i myself am an asian who only has one living grandparent. i can just recall the many times we've opted not to visit our grandparents since we're busy with other stuff. this is like a hard…

    This offers more than my brain can handle. As of now, I started reading the book it was based on so I can walk myself through the story one word at a time. I’ll definitely rewatch this once I finish.
