Rich drama and beautiful cinematography make up for sometimes confusing plot about a man and a woman destined to love each other from childhood, despite sometimes being continents away from each other. Their parents’ intertwining lives, chance encounters and eventual tragedies are a part of their story, and thanks to great talent on display from the youngsters, it’s always absorbing and worth watching.
