Sam is a very good story teller and a pro performer. She is flawless in her delivery. Touching and poignant moments from her life take us from laughter to tears. A journey worth watching. In the end Sam concludes that dreaming shouldn't take us too far away from who we are and that we need to be grateful for what we have right now. ... full review

I thought it was really boring. I should have been filled with emotion but all I felt was (is it over yet). I actually fell asleep. The direction was terrible. I've seen a lot of story tellers recently and they put your story teller to shame.... full review
