In order to fully embrace a loving relationship for the first time in her life, an emotionally closed woman delves deep into her subconscious to overcome the deep-rooted fears and paralysing shame from her past.
Silence Undone introduces us to Sophie, a troubled and emotionally distant young woman, learning to open up about her childhood traumas and accept that her past shouldn’t define her future.
We meet her as she’s dressing to head home after intercourse. Her boyfriend, Matthew, asks her to stay for once, but she tells him she cannot.
Later that night she takes a risk and explores her mind-maze made of memories and fears as she searches for a guide. She meets her eleven year self and realises she needs to choose to open up about the dark events of her youth that have shaped and constrained her ability to live, love and be loved.
This is a story about the horror of abuse, but even more it’s about the importance of self-acceptance and strength in vulnerability. It is based on a true story.
What people say about the film
“A powerful and hopeful film. The battle is painfully recognisable. It makes my desire to share even greater. Now seeing to eliminate the fear. Watching Silence Undone gives me hope, that sharing can bring you something. Understanding, warmth en being worthy to be cared about.” – Sexual abuse survivor
“A lot of people still feel ashamed about being abused and carry the burden alone. Now that I have found and reclaimed my voice, I want to empower others and show that such traumatic circumstances in the past should not dictate their future.” – Linda Jacobsen
