Alison is a triumphant, deeply personal and fairytale-like account of a woman who, after enduring a horrific incident in which she is raped, stabbed and disemboweled, refuses to become a victim. Through her survival spirit, she is able to transform trauma into a personal liberation that has rippling effects on all who meet, hear and see her. Very much her own hero, her tale is one of the relentless nature of trauma and the constant struggle to keep it at bay. Built around intimate interview sessions, this is a story of monsters, miracles and hope in the new South Africa.
