Simple, but nice. Clearly the best of the group. Great interviews! I really love when he talks about his life during Covid. It’s a great turning point in the film. Lovely job. I was interested the whole time.

Great fun visuals in the intro. There's some excess of slow motion in the rest of the story that doesn't add to it. This is a really great story! In the beginning when you use slow motion on the drifting, It works really well. About 1:40 in, I started feeling like the slow motion was being overused. I like that we hear from one of their moms. I think it gives the story more depth.
