Judges commended the “true and honest exposé of the care system with fantastically chosen contributors”. With themes of identity and escaping from broken pasts and addicted parents woven through the film, the courage and humility of Arron and Sulaimaan touched the judges.... One judge drew parallels with the seminal Seven Up! series, noting its commitment to the “classic documentary style”, free of graphics and reality techniques.
