Airs on Netflix now!
I'm sorry it took so long to review this...I've been very
busy all summer, and there are so many new shows and
miniseries to review!
This is a really good documentary, and everyone should
watch it. Not only is it interesting and has great music,

You won't be sorry if you watch this! I watched it late

and bizarre dreams. Honestly! It's definitely worth
watching, though, and it's an inspiring story and even
timely in some ways.
