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.

Her will to live and fight for her rights and many other victims such as herself
At first i was edgy about watching this documentary but deep down i knew this was going to be a sad and very emotional story which it was! You had my crying myself out like a baby. Alison is such a powerful woman so inspirational to all the women who had been victims such as herself! She fought so hard and justice was served.
