“It’s taken 22 years for Alison’s story to be told on the big screen, and I believe it took that long because Alison Botha was waiting for Uga Carlini to enter her life. Only Uga could tell Alison’s story, Alison’s way.”

“The predominant message of the film is one of hope. It weaves together a story of how bad things can happen to good people. It shows how sexual violence is all about power.”

- Elle, South Africa

“The creative and eclectic frame for the story makes it more sentimental, intimate and gives it a homemade feeling as if Alison was bestowing her story as a gift to us.”


“The documentary is frank and chilling. Yet, it is also surprisingly warm and inspirational.”
