Greenland has the world's highest rate of child sexual abuse. It has always been a taboo subject in Greenlandic society. Research from 2005 to 2007 shows that 31 percent of women and 10 percent of men in Greenland had been sexually abused before the age of 15. But the problem still remains unspoken. This project aims to cover the pain and trauma that saturate Heidi Amondsen's life as a single parent and a victim of sexual abuse. What is there to hold on to when it's a shame to ask for help? Maybe love can keep you alive.
