I would LIKE to review this film, but cannot find it.
25 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

My father was one of the Bulgarians that escaped and set off on the Journey to Freedom with Stephen Apostolof...

I believe there were 5 of them altogether. And while they escaped together through the Turkish border, they didn't all end up in the same places. Two stayed in France, and three came to the States. My Dad being one of them. There are two remaining from the 5, my Dad (88) and his cousin in France.

I would LOVE to get a copy of this film. From what I understand, it is not 100% based on their true adventure, but loosely so. Still, I would love to see it if anyone can direct me to how I can do that I would greatly appreciate it.
