Like the relentless river that flows prominently through Jewels story, the economy propels most of the characters out of their mountains. Except for her mom, who stands like a rock amid the swirling waters of change. Without her example, the Meek children might have become dysfunctional individuals- instead they develop resilience.This tribute to a mothers power flows like a river through time and memory.
