what families can talk about

  • Families can talk about wishes. What sorts of things do you wish for? Do they ever come true? If so, what happened?
  • Have you ever tried to do something good for someone and had it go wrong? What happened? What did you do to try to fix things?
  • No matter your beliefs, the film's idea that doing good deeds for others as a way of building community is a positive one. What good things could you do to help others around you?
