“A useful contribution to the historical record and a gesture of thanks to those risking their lives to protect the rest of us.” ~ Eye for Film UK
“Sweta is an inspiration to all the women entrepreneurs and small business owners who looked beyond the pandemic; bringing forth these stories, despite the odds.” ~ Los Angeles Tribune
“Sweta Rai has come up with something ingenious for this documentary about five doctors on the frontlines. Not being allowed to go near the doctors due to the possibility of being exposed, Rai has gotten first hand experience from the five doctors themselves by asking them to record their experiences from their cameras with Rai directing the film from her home.” ~ World Film Geek
