fairly radical approach to filming but done well
19 May 2017 | by (australia) – See all my reviews

This movie explores the tragic circumstances of refugees fleeing their homeland in the hope of escaping to better and safer shores. It took me a while to work out the style, I knew they ere travelling in a dysfunctional boat - however the back drop is the current sweat shop that one of the sisters are currently working in. I don't want to give too much away so attempting to choose my words carefully, however, overall it is a very emotional story, one that needs to be told and seen my many - The acting is marvellous and full kudos to the director.
