An untold story

Really interesting but sad story. We need to here these life stories so the future world has a better understanding of what war causes 👌

Blown away

I haven’t even finished the pilot yet but I can already tell that this is going to be my new favourite. Emotionally charged without trying, real stories featuring real people, I’m in love.
