“This comedy-drama revolves around an octogenarian's life-long struggle to accept and return the love of God. Despite the distractions and temptations of Pride, Lust, Envy, Anger, Greed, Gluttony and Sloth in many of their guises, it is the Christ Light that ultimately shines through.”–Amanda's Companion -- One Woman's Journey to God.
