Co-presented with the Independent Film Festival Boston
After the brutal slaying of her teenage son in Boston, Janet Connors reaches out to her son’s killer to offer a chance for forgiveness. They team up with a group of mothers of murdered children to help young people in their community break the chain of violence and revenge. Janet realizes she needed to make her own justice, but instead of exacting vengeance, she looks for humanity. She fights the bureaucracy to become the first person in Massachusetts to hold a victim-offender dialogue through the corrections system.
This film will be preceded by LENOX STREET. (see description on Films page)
