  • 5 stars "Really Great & intense movie! Hard to watch scenes that expresses how trauma in early childhood can and does affect one later. This young man was fatherless like most hardened criminals are. Being a strong loving father would've prevented & stopped much if not all of this. Excellent acting by everyone!!!"
