Full of suspense and contemplation
30 September 2018 | by rachelrileySee all my reviews

Great meditation on repentance and forgiveness of an Aussie ex soldier. I loved seeing the landscapes of Afghanistan and it's people in this gentle and nuanced film. A film about peace and connection with a good dose of suspense and little moments of humour for good measure
