Fantastic! Netflix pick this up.
15 May 2019 | by gideonzackSee all my reviews

This is an incredible story and very well done. Hard subject matter to handle but this story must be told and seen. This is a women's empowerment plot and it would be awesome if Netflix picked this up and did a wide release. These films don't get enough credit or viewership.

I was enthralled from the first 5 minutes. Netflix don't let this waste away in lifetime movie ether. License it and spread it. Will be good for society. 5/5
