An incredible story with a solid production.
12 September 2017 | by gricey_sandgrounderSee all my reviews

While the way it was presented is perfectly functional but nothing exceptional, the story itself did its job.

The story is quite something and needs to be seen or at least read about.

As for the film documentary itself, it is perfectly coherent but not exceptional. However, it left me frustrated as there was never any conclusion.

But like I said, the story is unbelievable enough to check out.
