at the lowest point of his life, Richie got a phone call from his sister. they haven't contacted in years, but now she called him desperately needing someone to look after her 9-year old daughter Sophia for a few hours. Sophia originally hated this uncle of hers, as much as her mother does. but soon they realized Richie was a far more reliable person than they thought.
despite being a short film of 19 minutes, Richie and Sophia had absolutely captured our heart. they were perfect together, not in a romance way, but in a comfortable way. it was definitely a powerful film, extremely well presented with strong messages told in a subtle way. without bringing tears to our eyes, it made our heart sore just by looking at how much they struggle for a support or two.
