| Hard-hitting film for those that'll listen...
It simply amazes me how films like this, ones that show the contrast between depravity and compassion, are hated. I cannot understand how stories such as this get buried under misguided judgment. I hear and read reviews that entirely miss the heart of the story and interested only in pointing out ill-perceived shortcomings. How many critics have actually stopped and fully considered the intent of the writer and what he was trying to accomplish? How many have placed themselves in the story and asked "what if this happened to me" or "what would've I done"? How many reviewers have been to places such as Cambodia and seen the horrors that this director has? Instead of pushing aside bias and taken in the film for what it was meant to be, they've done a great disservice by asserting their opinion based upon ill-perceived notions and toxic world view.

"For evil to prevail, all it takes is enough good men to do nothing..." Christopher Bessette made a stand and a hard-hitting statement with this film. It has personally inspired me to keep giving my own money to support brave men such as those in an organization called "Underground Railroad" who put themselves at risk rescuing children from sex trafficking all around the world. I believe Mr. Bessette has done humanity a great service by awakening the hearts of those who'll listen to his stories. He's done his part and I can only hope he and others like him, will continue to make films of this magnitude to enflame the rest of us to do something.
