Une famille conformiste indo-canadienne d’une petite ville de la Colombie-Britannique porte un épouvantable secret : trois sœurs ont subi dès l’enfance les agressions sexuelles d’un proche plus âgé. Après avoir gardé le silence durant près de 25 ans, elles choisissent de révéler la vérité, non seulement pour protéger d’autres jeunes parentes, mais surtout pour donner l’exemple à leurs propres filles.

This film deals with mature subject matter. Viewer discretion is advised

    Thank you for this film. It really helped me discover the culture. I Thicke those 3 sisters are just beautiful, inspiring. I think it took a lot of courage for all the family to go trough this. I feel that all girls around the world should be loved and Cherish and protected as equal Human beings that we need to respect.
