Hard upbringing with No connection to emotions
23 August 2018 | by marcus-o-anderssonSee all my reviews

A tragic upbringing told trough a really weak storyline. It repeats itself trough the story eventough it's told trough present time. A harsh childhood with abuse and drugs. But the director fails miserably to get any feelings for the stories victims. If this was shown on tv I would have changed the channel.
