Because We Are Girls

Because We Are Girls

| 1 h 25 min

A conservative Indo-Canadian family in small-town British Columbia must come to terms with a devastating secret: three sisters were sexually abused by an older relative beginning in their childhood years. After remaining silent for nearly two and a half decades, the sisters finally decide to come forward—not only to protect other young relatives, but to set an example for their daughters as well.

This film deals with mature subject matter. Viewer discretion is advised.
