Well....
31 December 2019 | by mycareergrhSee all my reviews

I LOVE docs and was enjoying this; until while watching, I googled "Darwin" to see a map of exact location....and there was a result for registered offender" in Darwin. Turns out, it was one of the main guys of focus in film So, needless to say....I stopped watching because; well just a BIG fact NO for me. *Wondering why filmmaker didn't do a little more research on this.
