"This is a moving film about a strong womanʻs battle for child care and support. Clarissaʻs battle is for all of us, and for the betterment and resilience of society. Her advocacy and activism help us to understand systemic inequalities and encourage participation that is both fierce and tender. This film asks us to challenge injustice with careful, deep listening to the frontline communities who have suffered without despair and are finding sustainable and just solutions. Clarissa shows us that true courage is about walking down a long road, sometimes alone, with little rest and nourishment, without assurances but with imagination and persistence. She is an inspiration and Tamara Perkinsʻ spotlight helps us all to find the courage we need to keep walking our own paths."
