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.
