88 min

Israeli beauty queen Linor Abargil was abducted and raped in Milan, 2 months before being crowned Miss World in 1998.

10 years later, she’s ready to talk about it – and to encourage others to speak out.

Linor travels to speak with teens in South Africa, where girls are statistically more likely to be raped than educated. She visits U.S. college campuses where women describe a campus culture that fails to take assaults seriously. From rape crisis centres worldwide, to Hollywood’s living rooms, Linor is met with emotional support, but the advocacy work causes her own trauma to resurface.
