I hated the pun title
24 November 2019 | by ersbelSee all my reviews

Amateurish.

The pun title spells it out, so there are no surprises. I watched it because I wanted to see the story. But there is no story. Only some footage gathered in a few vignettes. Is she fighting the system? Maybe in another documentary. For the time being she is fighting Russian women somewhere in Asia.
