Surprised at the low rating!
26 September 2018 | by grantham-15125See all my reviews

This series is quality drama. It tells the story of a Rwandan girl now grown up who was rescued following a genocide. The series tells the story of the girl's pursuit of justice. Outstanding performances from the girl played by Michaela Cowl, Harriet Walter as her mother and a wonderfully nuanced performance by John Goodman. The supporting cast are great too I've watched to episode 3 so far and I'm totally hooked. Looking forward to the rest!
