First just ignore negative racist reviews which unfortunately I found them in some other rating movies websites and you might see them here as well !

This is a very good well written plot about a unique friendship which you'll dream of having your own Mr. church , Its more of a family relation when some families member are missing that with one another at these time .

It started when a girl is telling her story with a stranger cook in her kitchen house from there things started to feel differently since she saw him at the first time ..

That relation starts to grow over the time with all the events they both have experience together from starting of a six month arrangement then that time have extended into years .

It's one of a great drama films I have seen since a long time .
