Description

When mother of three, Rachel Adamo, unexpectedly encounters her former theology school professor, Jay Winchester, at a memorial service, memories of past sexual victimization by Jay and others are triggered. Rachel decides to share her story with her young adult daughter, Jennifer, a recent college graduate who has returned home to heal from a broken heart. Rachel senses, without knowing why, that their mother-daughter relationship will improve, and that Jennifer can benefit from knowing Rachel's past. The two women spend six consecutive Sunday mornings in conversation about rape, Jay and other men, sexual exploitation, and the road to recovery. In the process, Jennifer is empowered to reveal her own hidden truth. Sunday Confessions is a fictionalized story of sexual violence and recovery based on actual people and events. The characters' stories disclose the reality that perpetrators are everywhere - in universities, workplaces, neighborhoods, and even in schools.
