A moving film that draws you in
13 July 2017 | by markniznik-02542See all my reviews

Powerful as it's based on a true story. Great casting of the main characters. Although the film is about how a family comes to terms with issues of the past, it has many parallels to what's going on around us in the world today. Fantastic soundtrack and camera work. I'd thoroughly recommend seeing this film.
