Striking, riveting and poignantly true. The power held in scenes throughout the film, definitely opens minds to a hurtful past. Not for the faint hearted yet still kept me engaged all the way through.

Very sad but also shows the beauty of humanity in a time where people treated others as less than. A reminder to never forget
