In this beautiful movie ancient grievances are transformed into healing encounters through joining and communication, demonstrating the importance of being open to forgiveness and seeing that the past need not hold any power over us now. Several characters have deep emotional wounds that are covered over and run their lives. One almost commits suicide, while another wants her tubes tied because of past associations. Two are frightened to be in a relationship, and another is scared to go into the city. Through synchronicities and a willingness to open up and be vulnerable, their true invulnerability is seen. Then the next steps that lead the mind deeper into joy are given obviously and easily. True forgiveness is highlighted in a scene where a father asks for forgiveness from his young son and the boy just says, “Ok, Daddy,” with complete detachment from the idea that there ever was a past to forgive.

Movies are an excellent way to watch your mind, to pay attention to your emotions, and to help you discover your unconscious beliefs.
