Disturbing
2 March 2019 | by mbazhomeSee all my reviews

It's classified as a thriller but it's more like dark and disturbing. Family secrets, child abuse, no money, bad parents, hopeless existence. And things got worse as the story moved along. Mom managed to escape, life in prison is a day at the beach compared to what's going on back home. What a sad life for all involved. I give this an 8.
