My Thoughts:
This movie was incredibly intense. It grabbed me from the beginning and I could barely breathe during the entire movie. I will warn you that the violence is graphic and there is a horrifying rape scene. This movie is not for the squeamish. I do think it is important to see this movie. These abuses are still happening and the people that are perpetrating them have never been brought to justice. It is time to open our eyes and speak out.

My Takeaway: 
One person can make a difference.
