A conservative Indo-Canadian family in small-town British Columbia must come to terms with a devastating secret: three sisters were sexually abused by an older relative during their childhood. After remaining silent for nearly two and a half decades, the sisters finally decide to come forward to set an example for their daughters. Baljit Sangra۪'s powerful and poignant documentary is a film for the times which encourages us to confront the wrongs of the past to work toward a better future.

Feature film screening followed by a Q&A hosted by Fashion & Art Curator Ryan Lanji.
