Together they attempt to escape their enslavement and reclaim their freedom.

Lost potential in the screenplay, acting and directing, but see it for the brutal awareness.
20 January 2018 | by TheTopDawgCriticSee all my reviews

This was a great topic to make a film about, and one would think with so many (15!) producers involved, they wouldn't have messed up the production.

For starters, you don't hire Siddharth Kara, the author of one book (on the subject matter) with zero film experience to write the screenplay. He should have stayed on as only a producer but only to consult, and hired a professional screenwriter.

Next, the directing was sub par... nice camera work but the actors, albeit C-grade, needed better direction so they wouldn't appear as if this was their first high school play. A few of the actors were decent, but I could see the lost potential to make their roles great from the lack of direction from novice director Will Wallace. Again, had a better director come on board, this film would have been great.

Overall the story/premise needed to be shown to create awareness, Some parts are brutal, but it does get the message across.

Would I see it again? No. Would I recommend it? Maybe to parents with young daughters.

It's a 7/10 from me, primarily for the story that needed to be told.
