It's so well done!
17 May 2019 | by carolm-18203See all my reviews

I watch documentaries all the time, this is one of my top favorites if not the favorite. I don't have ms nor do I have anyone close to me that does, yet I'm drawn into the struggle of the people in this documentary. It's fascinating!
