A most beautiful piece of work - when that degree of empathy is on display it is truly a work of art and a thing of wonder that draws you right in.

The Narrow Bridge is an extraordinary accomplishment. Esther Takac and her protagonists take us on a complex, deeply moving journey – from darkness and despair, towards the glimmer of light and hope. Everyone should watch, hear, and reflect upon this powerful and inspiring film.
