The film tells the story of Kristene Chapa, a former CBC student who survived a sexual assault in 2012. Chapa was left for dead after a brutal attack that claimed the life of her girlfriend. Despite overwhelmingly difficult odds, Chapa continues to recover and advocates for sexual assault awareness. Her compelling story has gained national attention and has been featured on “Dateline”, “Investigation Discovery”, and “The View”.

Minn will be in attendance to present the film and meet with students. The film premieres September 29th, 2022, nationally.
