Bella

Bella’s life was irreversibly changed at 13 when doctored images of her were posted on a pedophile site that told men how to find her and rape her. She avoided physical assault but suffered psychological wounds that she denied to everyone, including herself. Ten years later, Bella returns home to help her parents move and confronts the trauma of her online sexual assault – and the childhood friend who betrayed her.
