I just watched this with my girlfriend. And to be honest, first when I read what it was about I was hesitant, I had my superstitions. Poledancing, what is this.... But now, I saw it and I was very moved, my girlfriend too. The women touched my heart telling their story and I felt ashamed to be a man. So so much abuse, there really must come balance, the female part in women and in man too must be opened up give credit too, the sensitivity, vulnerability, dare to be open, to cry to feel pain, anger, sadness. Everything is a gateway to healing. Thank you for this beautiful documentary. Thank you all the women portrayed for telling your story.
