    It was an intriguing documentary. I actually cried at the end. The human spirit for good, empathy and survival is often underreported...

    Glad I took the time to watch this. This was a GREAT story! I even shed a tear. Now THIS is what I'd like to see made into a movie!!! *sigh*

    Blacks who flew in the RAF also don't get enough cinema love.
