Synopsis


In this devastating exposé of injustice, Academy Award®-nominated documentarian Kirby Dick uncovers the epidemic fracturing our nation’s military forces: the sexual assaults of over a half million soldiers. Telling their stories with heartbreaking candor, the proud women and men reveal how they were abused and betrayed by the institutions they have sworn their lives to, including the deeply troubling fact that the people these soldiers must turn to for help are often working in collusion with the rapists to keep the scandal quiet. A truly important piece of investigative journalism, Dick’s film refuses to allow this disgracefully broken system to go unseen any longer.
