I didn’t know about Betty Anne Waters, that’s a truly inspiring story! The studio wants to promote the film as exploration of the profound bond between a brother and sister – a love so deep, so unequivocal, so complete that it becomes a force that will not be denied or defeated. But i see something more interesting in this story: that working hard and dedication to one’s goal can move mountains! Never give up, work hard to get what you really want! :)
