Human Experience

We are not a movie family. We are more likely to read books. However, the Human Experience was not only engaging, but touching. It is so easy to get caught up in ourselves, but this movie takes us on a journey beyond ourselves. I can't say too much without giving away the story--just view it. We borrowed it from the library, but I am hoping to purchase it.
