An excellent film about an ordinary person who accomplishes a great feat.

I have met and worked briefly with Concetta Hassan. I was amazed at how humble she is. She was a first as this movie so wonderfully describes. It is well done and the acting superb! I fear it could be a forgotten movie if it remains unavailable to purchase. I think her courageous spirit should be an example to others, especially young women who are trying to find themselves in this world.
