“It’s a story of a woman who defies the rules of the establishment, of the Church, of the State. She goes against them all in order to redefine herself in her own terms, the way she wants to be and the way she wants to exist.”

“It’s a film that is empowering… as I am growing older I understand the importance of courage. I hope this film gives courage to women and empowers women and gives courage to women of all ages to be who they are against all odds.”
