A woman, a man, a rape, and a hard journey from violence to reconciliation.
Thordis Elva was sixteen when she was raped by her then-boyfriend, Tom Stranger. Like most instances of sexual violence, it was never reported to the police.
Sixteen years later, she boards a plane to do an extraordinary thing: fly seven thousand miles to meet up with the man� ? who turned her life upside down, to confront the past and find out if reconciliation is possible.
South of Forgiveness is an unprecedented collaboration between a survivor and a perpetrator, each equally committed to exploring the darkest moment of their lives. It is a true story about being bent but not broken, of facing fear with courage, and of finding hope even in the most wounded of places.
