The documentary portrays well the real emotions of loss due to crime and the struggle to rebuild one’s life. The Streufert family members disagree over the need and value for continued meetings with the offenders, and the surviving daughter raises some strong objections to this course of action. These are addressed sensitively and helpfully in the video. This film is excellent for demonstrating the complexity of the needs of victims and the importance of caution and expert facilitation when addressing those needs through restorative dialogue.
