Difficult to watch but educational and worrisome. Can the UN be this bad?
A true story of women trafficking while the United Nations and its peace keepers ignore the problem and even deny it. The movie is excellent at giving the viewer the sense that those in command do not care when women are trafficked, slaved and prostituted. It is a real story and it is portrayed with a realism that is captivating. You live the story minute by minute and you get involved in the traumatic experience of The Whistleblower, her desperation and sadness are very well portrayed. A must be seen....to understand the horrors of war and the capacity that commanders have to ignore the problems. Bosnia was not a place that attracted a lot of attention. Massive killings took place while the world looked else where. Perhaps because it has no oil, or because it is a Muslim country, the media ignored the war. And now we see how the media also ignored the reality of that war and the misbehavior of its commanders. Can something be done at this stage? Can we still learn lessons??
