Brilliant, Emotional Film
This film is not a history lesson. It is instead the tales of a group of inspiring survivors who discuss what they went through and how they learned to leave meaningful, special lives. Each person is miraculous and shows the boundless strength survivors are known for. True legacies of valiant courage, hope and strength.
