Heartache and Hope
25 March 2014 | by (Greensboro, NC) – See all my reviews

Susie's story is compelling, as is Donna Lawrence's. As a resident of Greensboro, where the events took place, I remember well the news accounts of Susie being found nearly dead from her burns and the updates on her condition as the community came together to contribute to the Guilford County Animal Shelter as they helped Susie. The community also rallied around Donna (a dog attack survivor and Susie's adoptive "mom") and Susie to change the animal cruelty laws in North Carolina.

This movie is faithful to the spirit of Donna, Susie, and other survivors and those who love them. Keep a handkerchief handy and watch this movie!
