Reminder of what we take for granted
20 April 2019 | by Reviewer1See all my reviews

We take for granted that much of the technology we use everyday and are used to seeing didn't really exist 18 years ago. This is one of the quirky aspects of life for a woman who was imprisoned as a teenager and now, a woman in her late thirties, who is trying to catch up on what she has missed out on. Trying to rebuild her life, her community and her mother are stuck in the past and won't let her move forward. Darkly comical but sensitively done. Really enjoyable, well acted series.
