Summary
A confronting and compelling account of a young woman's journey from victim to survivor. Raised in an urban Aboriginal community in Sydney, Lani had a childhood filled with love but alcoholism in her family left its scars. By thirteen, she was in a cycle of drug and alcohol abuse herself. Then a relationship with a young man from her community trapped her in a situation that she almost didn't survive. Subjected to extreme physical and sexual violence at the hands of her partner, Lani finally knew she had only one choice: to leave him, or die. She escaped and got sober. But the past wouldn't leave her alone and she knew that to heal herself she had to speak out. Braving the police, the courts and her community, she stood up, determined to bring her abuser to justice
