Emotional documentary of the Boston bombing and impact on it's survivors.
18 January 2017 | by (Edinbruhhh) – See all my reviews

Well-made documentary about the Boston bombing that took place during the Boston marathon in 2013.

With tons of video-footage covering most aspects the actual marathon, the bombing and even the chase of the suspects afterwards etc, but it's first and foremost a documentary about the victims and about overcoming a tragedy.

Focusing primarily on some of the survivors dealing with the aftermath, not only physical issues such as losing limbs but mental as well and we get to follow them around on a day to day basis as they try to piece their lives back together.

It gets very emotional at times and it was a struggle occasionally to hold the tears back.

So yeah most definitely worth watching.
