Very challenging preview to watch, knowing there are still people suffering in Syria. Aside from moving me to tears, I also found it to be a compelling story. I can't believe it. That's such a fascinating tale. I'm relieved that a film got produced on the subject. It's a must-see, and I will be watching this on release.

Incredible is all I can say. I'm gobsmacked that a movie was made about it. I know you'll want to watch this. Having never heard this story before, the trailer moved me to tears. I am grateful that more first-person accounts of the experiences of refugees are being shared.

Netflix already has many ridiculous shows and movies, and now they're making even sillier ones.I am glad that they are still making serious and moving movies like this somehow. It's fantastic to see this in action. The backstory was just as incredible and needed to be told with precision and care. The sibling bond was more believable thanks to the excellent casting choice of real sisters.
