Raising the bar for future documentaries.
17 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

This entire movie could be watched while muted, and is clear that this documentary is not biased, it is true. The level of abuse these kids endure on top of struggles already bearing down on them to begin with. Having a stranger hold absolute authority over you in unfamiliar territory.

This documentary is one of the few that holds precedence over fair representation, because physical and mental abuse toward innocent children or "person" in the name of any god is not arguable or debatable. Amazing how close they got to the students and counselors. Thanks to their ignorance, this great documentary came to fruition.
