The story and how it was told in interesting way was good, so the movie(doc.) wasn't boring. It was easy to fallow the plot, everything was good with the movie but if you think this film is based on girl who killed a person and now she's a victim. If we would believe in her words, yeah, she tried to self-defence herself but the facts are that she killed a man and that's all we know. Did he tried to hurt her? We don't know that, film didn't tell us anything about killed person. Did he had mental problems? Is this first time he've tried to "buy prostitute"? What neigbours think about killed person? What do they know about his life? It was lack of information from murder guy perspective. Maybe he was only trying to help poor girl he saw in street and suddenly he gets cold murdered. I've watched this movie but I'm still lost, I'm still not sure is she manslaughter or just a poor girl who had terrible childhood and tried to defence herself. Saw much better documentaries but it wasn't the worst also.
