Movie about the courage of a girl who overcomes challenges that most girls her age do not have to face.
19 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Amazing movie about friendship, family, challenges, and dreams. Not your typical documentary. Intriguing storyline and well made movie. Window into the mind of a young Orthodox Jewish girl with a dream. While it has some of the stylistic aspects of a documentary, the story behind it could have been a story thought up by a screenplay writer. The characters are funny, friendly and completely real. I am amazed at how well the movie turned out and if I could rate it eleven out of ten stars, i would. Major respect to all of the people who worked so hard on this movie, it deserves to go places. Major respect to the Kutin family for just being them. Definitely watch!!! It is completely worth your while. This movie will leave you feeling motivated and might make you want to join a gym.
