The Light of The Moon

Mar 12, 2017

10:45am – 12:19pm CT

Bonnie - a young, successful Latina architect - is walking home from an evening out in Brooklyn when she is sexually assaulted. She attempts to keep the assault a secret from her boyfriend, Matt, but the truth soon emerges. Bonnie emphatically denies the impact of what has happened to her and fights to take back control and regain intimacy in her life, but cracks soon begin to surface. Another attack in the neighborhood only drives her further into denial, before an encounter with an at-risk woman forces Bonnie to confront the truth.
