Touching and inspiring true-life story of a young female activist.
10 April 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Mary is a charming, spunky, independent and sometimes feisty teenage girl (and her character is well-portrayed by the actress as well).

As daughter of a well-known and famous journalist/newspaper editor she has to fight to gain her own separate identity as an individual. She chooses to do so on the battleground of human rights issues, where she at times finds that she also has to overcome her own white upper-class blindness in order to truly understand the needs of people.

The movie is not only well-done, given its made-for-television format, it should be thought-provoking and challenging for anyone.
