Elvire Emanuelle gets the "Introducing" credit, but before the other actors. Since the word "Starring" doesn't appear, it looks as if all the actors are getting this credit. See more »

Great Story, Excellent Cinematography
24 April 2018 | by sammymodaresiSee all my reviews

A little gem in Netlix's huge library.

Great story, great acting all around. Definitely worth the watch. I appreciate how the director and screen writers kept in clean for viewers in comparison to what is being pushed out into the market in this day and age. No sex or nudity, just great story telling.

The lighting, the handheld looking shots, the overall cinematography was absolutely on point for the style.
