The awful truth
11 March 2017 | by julianbautista-46298See all my reviews

This movie shows the reality of my country.

It portraits perfectly how most of our people live, something that a tourist would never experience, the invisible majority. It also shows how vulnerable women are living in a place where justice is a luxury only people with money can afford.

I highly recommend this movie.
