Incredibly Moving
24 February 2002 | by FleaberhopperSee all my reviews

This is a series that should be watched by everybody. It is remarkable to see the kids grow, and deal with life like everyone has to. As far as documentaries go, this series should be awarded a special Academy Award because it is one of the best ever made.
