A motivational and encouraging watch! It was not quite what I was expecting it to be but it was an amazing documentary that left me feeling inspired! The shots they show you of the ocean are breathtaking, as is Bethany's incredible resilience! We highly recommend checking out this movie, especially if you've been a fan of Bethany's or if you have a teen girl. You can check out our full review, what to know before you see it, and discussion questions for after the movie on our blog DownTheHobbitHoleBlog dot com. It's the best documentary we've seen in a very long time!
