The Woman From

TWFM Concept 1 thumb.jpg

THE WOMAN FROM MONTEVIDEO is the story of two very different women with one thing in common. Moira and Lilja are survivors of sexual assault. Moira, from a pious home in rural Indiana, is a victim of father-daughter incest starting at age 13. Several years after a miscarriage at 16 and her family disintegrates, she encounters an intriguing woman from Montevideo, Lilja, in a chat room for survivors. Moira risks it all and goes to Uruguay to meet her. Through an emotional journey of healing, they give voice to their experiences and reclaim the intimacy and trust robbed of them. But their relationship is challenged when they find one seeks solace in forgiveness and the other revenge. Is their love strong enough to bridge the gulf between them? Or will their chosen paths to redemption divide Moira and the woman from Montevideo? 


THE WOMAN FROM MONTEVIDEO is a poignant and unflinching examination of the unfinished and often unspoken journey from victim to survivor. It captures the courage and resilience of its characters while adroitly evading the pitfalls of sentimentality and voyeurism. Despite their flaws, the characters emerge heroic—not as conquerors—but by choosing a purposeful life in spite of the indelible and corrosive forces of violation and memory.
