A good movie from the African country of Togo
27 March 2018 | by zzzorfSee all my reviews

I didn't know what to expect going into this but my expectations were really low knowing where it came from. That was the wrong opinion to go into this movie with. What I got instead was a really well thought out plot line, decent acting and thoughts to leave the movie with in how us in the "civilised world" treat these "underprivileged" countries.

The story seemed realistic, a cure is known in a local village and the great big pharmaceutical company wishes to have it all to themselves. The characters were all relateable and their agendas seemed on par with what you would expect.

In the end a really good movie that you should watch if you get a chance.
