It seems that summer has breathed out the rainbow of emotions that instantaneously evaporated in the heat of the day. At least this is obvious from the list of new June drama, horror and comedy movies, as it ends right after few titles. Only one drama movie this month is quite unusual and unexpected. Or perhaps it just confirms this old-time cliche of lightheaded and careless summer freeing you from your big dramas till your holidays end. No matter what's the reason, the movies on June's list are still worth your attention.
THE OTHER SIDE OF HEAVEN 2: FIRE OF FAITH

Shortly after arriving in Tonga, John's wife, Jean, becomes pregnant with their sixth child, a boy who is born with a serious illness that threatens to end his tiny young life.
