Emotional, gripping story. You would think that this story would be boring, just two people dealing with the tragedy of their pasts. But somehow it becomes so much more. It never got boring, and even the mundane day to day things seemed to have some point in the overall connection of the two. Each one helping the other come to terms with their own tragedies, and learning to move forward. Really enjoyed it.
