This film focuses on four people who have lived through painful and horrific events. Lesley Parrott's daughter was stalked, raped and strangled. Anne Marie Hagan's father was murdered by the next-door neighbour. Alan McBride's wife and eight others were killed in an IRA bombing. Reverend Jule Nicholson's daughter was killed on the London underground in an al-Queda bombing. Heartfelt interviews, archival footage and images tell the stories of these characters as they absorb, cope with and attempt to move beyond brutal events. Their stories bring hope that there are other possibilities beyond blind revenge and that in forgiving others we can set ourselves free.
