Her Brave Journey

Her Brave Journey

During her almost-final moments when Kiara is pinned down by a man who claims to love her, fighting to breathe, her life at the mercy of her husband, she repeatedly begs him, “Please don’t kill me. My parents need me.”


Even in today’s #MeToo era, with women and men sharing their stories of assault and abuse, the topic of domestic abuse is still obscured, especially in the South Asian community. Stuck in this vicious and confusing cycle, Kiara, a member of that community, seeks the strength to challenge patriarchy as she begins to recognize the pretenses of the “white picket fence” dream, where marriage and children are the only measure of happiness and prosperity, and dares to defy it. Her Brave Journey serves as a powerful message to victims and survivors of abuse, in particular South Asian women who battle societal and cultural pressures every day. Go inside the life of Kiara and follow her brave journey as she reclaims her life and discovers her inner warrior.
