Amazing must-see film
23 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

This film hits so many themes and is so moving and kept me engaged the whole time. It does a great job of shedding light to this time in history and has a great story line and actors.Shot with a beautiful backdrop and vibrant characters, it was both very entertaining and emotional to watch.
