An affirmation of justice in an unjust world
The film presents the story of Judy Wood's pivotal breakthrough in changing the interpretation of political asylum in the USA. Since we know she won, the main interest comes from watching the filmmaker's exploration of her emotional struggles. The results are uplifting. You come out of this film feeling like the "little guy or gal" can still win. It only takes clarity and persistence. The film is well crafted, well-acted, and but dialogue is a bit cringy. It's hard to see how this movie differentiates itself from a TV MOW or biopic.
