    Synopsis

    Like far too many Canadian women, Teneil is the survivor of sexual assault. Her reality is living everyday with physical and mental triggers that force her to relive experiences of trauma. In a world that still often tells her, it's her fault, Teneil has internalized so much of the rhetoric of rape culture and victim blaming. She believes if she is just cautious and prepared enough nothing bad will happen to her again, or at the very least if it does she will be able to fight back this time. Only, the world has been lying to her, and Teneil has been lying to herself.
