Truly disturbing viewing
23 May 2017 | by corrado-prizziSee all my reviews

I noticed one reviewer here declaring this story has no factual proof for the claims it makes! Well, you can lead a horse to water.. How there can be any doubting the sincerity of these brave individuals' accounts of the horrors they suffered as children, is simply beyond me.

Away from the subject matter to the presentation: I found the seamless narrative, jumping back and forth chronologically to be very well done. I would deduct 0.5 for the music, which at times I found too loud and a bit heavy-handed. I could not understand a word of what DeepThroat was saying, either.

In all, a gripping documentary. Kudos to Netflix and the whole production. Much heartfelt sympathy and strength to all the victims.
