Two brothers, trying to keep their heads above water, searching for work in the tumult of the early twentieth century. Walter presents a story of love and longing amidst poverty and riches, graft and kindness.

I think this one should be a 3.5 star but since I liked more than I disliked I'll err on the high side.

The beginning is great, it gets a little slow, and the ending is rushed. Overall, it's an interesting story with many different angles. What we were given was very good, but I wanted (and still want) to know more about each person and each of the angles.
