Such resonance with the journey of a sexual abuse survivor
As a survivor of childhood sexual abuse myself, this powerful film left me resonating with so much of Lyndal's story (the main character). I've recently become aware that her lawyer was the catalyst for the creation of this film - that upon having a further survivor from Toowoomba Prep School come to him for assistance, he thought the only way to achieve the level of awareness and change needed was to create this film. I'm so glad he did - not just for the purpose he originally intended, but to let survivors everywhere know that their story needs to be told - to refuse to listen to anyone who says 'don't tell'. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
