"An idiosyncratic narrative that raises questions and promotes dialogue about change on a global scale...What the film taps into, and what is most important for us to grasp, is [Yildiz's] decision to live consciously -- to keep her eyes open to the harsh reality facing people in her community, and identify her place in changing it. Her story is another valuable addition to an already increasing library of human rights documentaries and films."
