Designed to be "inspirational," yet it shortchanges the complex reality of the lives it makes such a show of saving.

As inspiring as the story wants to be, its real drama is mired around the edges, where we get a sense of what it is really like to be born into a brothel.
Why, then, should we be eager to see a story of such incomplete inspiration? Because it's thrilling, and stirring. And because it is truth.
This is a work of art so deep and resonant that it puts most narrative films to shame.
The movie is a record by well-meaning people who try to make a difference for the better, and succeed to a small degree while all around them the horror continues unaffected.
