“The series is about Naomi’s journey, in a snapshot of her life,” said director Garrett Bradley, whose film “Time” was nominated for an Oscar for best feature documentary, in a press release.

“But it is also about the purpose of life, the personal worth, the courage it takes to allow personal values ​​to inform his work and vice versa.

“More than anything, I hope people can feel the power of empathy and feel encouraged to take risks in life, perhaps especially at times when the stakes can seem insanely high.”
