Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - This is a gritty but ultimately feel-good drama that is mostly subtitled. Adventurous adult filmgoers will find a lot to enjoy here though gritty violence and subject matter make it not for the fainthearted. While the story focuses on children and young people, this is not a film for kids.
