Excellent movie
15 November 2019 | by YS12345See all my reviews

This is an excellent movie to watch. It will make you cry, but this is the harsh reality of modern day. It tackles so many social issues. The cinematography is beautiful. The child actor is brilliant. It's good to see films like this that show the harsh realities of life and at the same time educate.

Brilliant movie.

Wish there was more information on net about the child actor.
