Some fathers...

Some parents had a bad experience from their childhood, and unfortunately postpone it on their own children.

And some (brave as peter) draw from them to extract the kindness and understanding and transform it into love.

The last words of the father of peter in the documentary are "when you understand that ...", he speaking to himself and he can not (by pride) turn into love, because he thinks it is too late or is it even a poor person.

I wish the father of peter to emulate his son, he will never find rest and peace without it.

I am not a believer (but I read most of the major works on monotheist), and i do not think the command "respect your father and your mother" be the most important.
For me the concept of forgiveness is the most important, and as Peter's father will not forgive his son, he can not forgive to himself.



Peter is living proof that good people can come through regardless of their upbringing. Like everything, a holistic approach is the way of a good life.

For the record, I rated this 8/10. Very sincere and well-produced documentary.


The stepfather is - sorry - a very nasty piece of work. It is a wonderful thing that Peter didn't internalize the apparent abuse that man put him amd his siblings through and turn it onto others. Peter is a beautiful, loving man (and it is to his credit that he can still love his stepfather) who is stronger and wiser for whatever he went through in his youth. His family is equally as beautiful and their free spirits are a joy to behold. I have to wonder, also, how Peter's mother could have married such a bitter, angry man and allow him to be so horrid to her children. I have less for her, frankly, than I do for her husband, because a mother has a sacred duty to her offspring - and this woman apparently negated that duty. She ought to thank her lucky stars her son is such a fine man, despite her husband. Shame on her and her spouse.
