In all honesty, I am one of those people who see a local production film pop up and think..."oh my word what are these South African's trying". At first glance without full knowledge of the background of this film, and just judging its cover I had the same summary, until I actually watched the movie. It was intense, thrilling and so touching that at some moments I felt my eyes fill with tears. This movie had me glued from the start until the end. Well done to the author, your life story is amazing and I am so glad you have shared it with the world. I would recommend this movie to everyone, young and old. It is inspiring and carries a message for all.
