Heartbreaking. It's completely unfair what happened to Lena. Nobody protected her. I'm just glad her momma taught her to have unshakable faith. I agree very much with captainZ!

Awesome, I loved this movie! I had to watch this movie for a school project and as i watched it i thought WOW! this woman is strong, she could get through anything. She knew what she had to do and did it no matter what cost. She struggled to survive and when i got to the end of the movie i cried. It was so sad that Lena did everything she could to try to survive and what she got in return was so wrong. She didn't deserve the hand she got dealt. She is a historic fiqure that i will never forget and if you watch this movie you will learn all about someone that has so much soul and wanted to survive so bad that she never gave up. I HIGHLY reccommend this movie to anyone! It is worth it to watch more than once. Great Movie! :)
