An amazing story about the rescue of women!

Veil of Tears is an amazing story about the rescue of women. The fact is, after centuries of oppression, Asia's women are some of the most disadvantaged, unreached people in the world. Narrated by Grammy award nominee Natalie Grant, and featuring insights from Dr. KP Yohannan, Veil of Tears brings to light the story of millions of women who are persecuted and savagely abused—simply because they are women. This is a gripping, must see documentary! These are the faces of true survivors. Those who have withstood a lifetime of adversity in the face of a culture stacked against them. Take a heartfelt journey through the eyes of these women, and others, who unveil their personal stories of persecution, rejection, abandonment, tragedy and even triumph. Get a glimpse of the true resilience of the human spirit and the hope that has changed the lives of millions like these and is helping change millions more.
