  1. This documentary is slow moving, dry and one dimesional. I anticipated a sensational and heart wrenching story, but instead I was left feeling detached and bored. I felt like I was only given a snippet of what lfe was truly like for him once he arrived at the camp. This documentary would have been more rounded out had it included more details of Gerron’s daily life in the camp and explored some of his personal relationships. InsteaIt lacks emotional and spiritual depth. I felt that a large portion of his story was left untold.
