"The filmmaker is on a path of redemption after betraying her family, friends and beliefs. The personal soul-searching story offers a relevant and powerful glimpse of a politically divided Norway. Although the film maybe lacked the technical polish of some of the others, it approaches its subject with a raw energy, and we applaud the filmmaker for her extraordinary courage in taking us with her on a journey for forgiveness. We congratulate this brave director on a powerful, touching and truly captivating film. "
