"Thank you and thank you again for making such a powerful film."

"This film is one
of the most powerful pieces I've ever had the opportunity to view. I would recommend this film for any audience wanting to grow and heal from issues related to homicide and domestic violence."

- Jeremy Collins, Coordinator,
NC Coalition for a Moratorium


"This is a wonderful film that affected me deeply. I was left thinking for several days about the people in my life that needed to be forgiven for much lesser acts."


"The film is gripping in the sense that it carefully illustrates what true forgiveness and true love is all about."


"It really hit me at an emotional level, it's a great piece of work.""My father and stepmother's murder happened 5 1/2 years ago. I felt pretty isolated and like I was struggling against the system alone.... it simply shows the side that so often gets silenced and it shows that those fighting for reconciliation instead of this false justice are not alone. Thank you."
