Powerful gut punch of a film essential for the present moment
5 June 2020 | by merton81See all my reviews

The stories are both inspiring and heartbreaking, the storytelling grips you from start to finish, and the feeling it leaves you is one of profound determination to be more vulnerable, be more bold, and most importantly, have a little more courage to stand up for what's right. Especially now.
