Nominated for a 2014 Emmy Award this is a portrait of a remarkable woman who’s resilience and strength of character transcends trauma to help others.
In 1998, six weeks before being crowned Miss World, Israeli woman Linor Abargil was raped at knifepoint. This documentary follows her as she tours the US, South Africa and Europe to meet other victims of rape, including Joan Collins and Fran Drescher. She helps them – and by extension, herself – to heal by encouraging them to speak out. With her unique, straight-talking empathy she empowers the women she meets by refusing to allow the stigma of shame to compound their suffering. Followed and supported by her family, Abargil tries to find purpose in what happened to her, eventually drifting away from her modelling career to find comfort in religion.
