Borderlines Film Festival
Illiterate, overweight, thrown out of school for being pregnant with her father’s child for the second time, living with her foul and abusive mother, 16 year-old Precious looks like a hopeless case so painfully extreme are her misery and despair. But inside she has a fierce determination that the alternative education system nurtures. So begins a heart-rending journey to self-acceptance and hope punctuated by some wonderful fantasy sequences. Unbelievably moving, the love and respect this shows its unlikely heroine will reaffirm your belief in the power of cinema.
Running time: 109 minutes
