Freedom of Belief
19 May 2014 | by See all my reviews

I quite enjoyed this movie, and was thoroughly inspired by Jennifer's courage & determination to fight back and defend her freedom by exposing the Chinese Communist Party's most the vile & vicious persecution that's taking place in various labor camps and prisons across China. I mean how can a government who is meant to protect it's own citizens kill them and sell their organs for a price! The world needs to know when such things occur not only just in China but anywhere else as well - it's a complete disdain for human rights & Freedom of belief.

Another highlight of this movie was it's theme song "The courage to Believe" simply stunning and bold - it truly touched my heart! I'd also like to take this opportunity to express my warm regards to the director and to the producer of this movie simply for supporting Jennifer and bringing her story to the world - excellent job and well done guys. The world absolutely needs more people like you to tell tale of the helpless & wounded that often go untold & unspoken!

We are all with you in this till the end. And I'm sure one day soon you will be able to go back to China and be free to belief and practice whatever you wish :)

My heart-felt condolence for those who lost their lives to CCP's persecution and Organ Harvesting:(
