This movie is sure to make everyone in the audience feel like their worst day could never compare to the lives of these 5 Ethiopian women who are the modern day lepers. Cast off by their families and villages, they live in exile, unable to make a living or socialize.

Without spoiling the end, I was beyond moved by their stories. I feel that I've been changed forever by getting to know these 5 women, and feel privileged to have been allowed to share their stories with us.

While their stories of transformation are dramatic, the filmmakers have managed to show the brutal reality of these women's lives without being heavy handed. In fact, there is a level of subtlety in how they address the political and socioeconomic factors that contribute to their plight. This is the anti-docutorial.

Words cannot describe how amazing the cinematography and soundtrack are. The scenic shots are sweeping yet not overblown. The score hits all the right notes without tugging at the audience in a manipulative fashion.

Bottom line: This is a must see for anyone who lives near the Quad in NYC.
