Powerful and Important
17 July 2020 | by brendosdelucaSee all my reviews

Incredible performances and heart breaking story. As an Australian living overseas this is so important for the world to see how Australia treats its refugees. People do not know how lucky they are just to be born in a certain country and have so many comforts that are so easy when compared to those in third World war stricken countries. We take it for granted. Stays with you long after watching!
