Touching and informative
29 April 2019 | by jjsunpuSee all my reviews

I watched with a few friends from our school PTSA. at a film screening event in University of Washington. Everyone was touched to tears. Many questions were asked after the QA session and we got to know the current situation in China. It is a great documentary with intense emotions and precious information. I applaud the leading actor's bravery and perseverance. After watching the film, we decided to film it at our school.
