Reviewer Ed Farolan

This family melodrama reflects our modern society. We are helpless in this dysfunctional economy, this dog-eat-dog life, a never-ending cycle of working just to pay off debts and putting food on the table.

The title of the film derives from the protagonist's job as a delivery driver who leaves this note when no one's home. The film won a number of awards in 2019, including Best European Film at the San Sebastian International Film Festival and the St. Louis International Film Festival.
