User Reviews

Best documentary ever
27 August 2020 | by michaeleejiangSee all my reviews

I was lucky to work for Paralympic movements for 6 six years. Those were the best 6 six years. I met a lot of best athletes and people on this planet. This documentary brings back a lot of good memories, and re-inspired me to be a stronger and better person.
