Admittedly, we are late to the party in finding this documentary about one of the most intriguing people in the Twin Cities. It was released about a month ago.
It’s about Stephen Dragert Gallivan, whom I wrote about last year, and whose decision to ditch a job with benefits and become an ice cream man always prompts us to ask, “Are we doing what we love today?”
Or are we afraid of life’s risks?
This film, though, is more than just the story of a man pursuing a dream. It’s about the most important people in our lives who encourage us to chase our passion when all logic may say “don’t.”
This is a great film. And you’ll feel better after you watch it.
