It's incomprehensible to think such cruelty exists... the enslaved woman "Marish" God I felt so deeply about her inhumane mistreatment. What a remarkable and brave woman to have to endure such cruelty for 10 years and at the same time trying to protect her family from harm. This film will break your heart as you watch with despair the unfolding horrendous abuse Misha is facing on a daily basis and seeing with an open eyes how her will broke. But, there is hope in the end as Marish takes the courage to escape. We need these films to become widespread, regardless of how uncomfortable they are, as only the awareness and education of this crime can have a real effect in eradicating it.
Some of the abusive comments about this film I have seen on internet just show a complete lack of compassion and care and for those who wrote it: this woman is braver than you will ever be.
