CGiii Comment

How about...we, as a planet - all religions - climb into the 21st century...and give our children the freedoms and choices that are their inalienable rights...scrap all those parental expectations and presumptions!?!

As powerful as a short film can be...Irasj Asanti has managed to do what most filmmakers want to do...make the audience [audibly] gasp.

A stunning film.
