A life inspiring movie!!
28 March 2017 | by cristina20See all my reviews

Such a great movie!! A great drama based on real facts! Nothing more touching and inspiring than seeing the struggles of a person and the ambition while pursuing one's dream inspired by true stories!!! Which reminds us that we can do it all if we really put our minds and souls to it! I strongly recommend it!
