HOW IS THOS FILM WIDELY UNKNOWN???
12 March 2019 | by sftrojanSee all my reviews

Wow! Admittedly, I do have a preference for art type films with raw (no pun intended) look at life in rural communities throughout the world. This is an excellent example at realism at its finest! Brilliant! Aside from some beneficial edits that would lessen the confusion, the film takes hold instantly. Gripping and honest. Everyone invoved are Superheroes, forget high budget!
