Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: This is a simple story. And it did not begin here. This thing of beauty, a joy forever. Rising. This warm glow in darkness, like the harvest moon. A Khmer proverb whispers, "Celebrate when the moon is bright." But for years, she was a child of the dump.

Thought provoking, wonderful,impacting film.
17 June 2016 | by korpakeSee all my reviews

I'm a guy and I pretty much never cry, but some of these stories made me cry. Not that that makes it a great film, but rather it is the content.

This film tells such wonderful stories in so many different ways. Great stories, great narration great visuals and soundtrack.

The stories show the horrendous things that women have to endure in developing countries and makes me really mad about how much energy we waste on frivolous issues in the developed world.

It really hammers home the point that investment into the education of young women in developing countries is one of the single best social investment we can make into a country.
