it takes a hart to understand this film makers point of view and piece it all together. the film has fights , war , drama , love and even a change in view.IT shows that a loss of life no matter how small can change a life. It shows some amazing special effects. with great songs it can really touch your hart. it makes you sit back and say * is this really my world could we be living like this? * it isn't a family movie but for the older generation it is a true learning experience. it helps you grow as a person .watching someone else go through this it can make you change your thinking. in no way is it a boring documentary its filled with life and culture .
