I will never drive in a car without locking the doors. I will never again watch a film without marveling at every camera angle and the lighting and knowing how many people are in the room watching the person voice her thoughts. I will never again stop myself from crying when I feel the need. I will never again see a butterfly without taking it as a sign just for me.

Easily one of the most amazing, powerful things I've ever seen...
I'm a paramedic so I may look at this differently than some. I can't imagine any way that her body survived this attack, but even beyond that, if you can believe it, her spirit survived, and that is nothing short of a miracle.
It's very graphic, so if you are triggered, or delicate to such things you should probably pass it by. But my life is much better because I've seen this movie.
I've seen some criticize the way that it's presented. I personally think that it's perfect in every way.
I'm willing to bet that you've never heard a story like this before, and I'll bet dollars to donuts that you never will again. It's that incredible.
