The documentary, "Unlikely Friends" explores how the power of forgiveness between victim and perpetrator can affect change within the criminal justice system by paving roads to reconciliation and rehabilitation.
These victims of horrific crimes seek forgiveness out of an individual need for healing. Surprisingly, these stories reveal that in that effort, they come to recognize their human connection to the perpetrator of the crime, which unexpectedly leads them into friendship. Both individuals then experience the transformational power of forgiveness, and both benefit from this remarkable and to many, unfathomable connection.
From award-winning filmmaker, Leslie Neale, these extraordinary stories will reveal a deeper understanding of the human need for healing through forgiveness in cases of violent crime and how this powerful act could have a positive effect on the penal system and all of society.
