Breaking the Silence - About the Participants
These five women are the reason we made this film. Their stories are examples of the triumph of the human spirit, the power of making purposeful decisions and taking complete self-responsibility for one's life. In these very difficult times, when more and more people are faced with challenging circumstances in every area of their lives, these women demonstrate that even the most severe, even brutal, circumstances can be overcome with the right attitude.
While they are certain to face many more challenges in their still young lives, all of these women are remarkably free of resentment and self-pity. They have all tapped into their essence, and developed internal strength in response to the adversities they've faced.
