The inspirational story of an elderly assault victim’s fight for justice...

In Easter 1991, 75-year-old Florence Holway was brutally raped in her home in rural New Hampshire, USA. A grandmother with an extraordinary zest for life, Holway promised herself during the rape that if she survived, she would make sure her attacker could never do the same thing to another woman.
"Rape in a Small Town: The Florence Holway Story" chronicles Holway’s ordeal and her heroic, 12 year struggle for justice.
Florence Holway felt she had been brutalised twice... first by the rapist and then by a flawed legal system that offered him a plea bargain – without consulting her – and the prospect of a lesser sentence.
Holway made good on the promise she had made to herself during the attack. She launched a campaign to try to force her attacker to trial. At first, her story was buried inside the local newspaper. But it got picked up by big city media and soon she became a national figure, telling her story to anyone willing to listen.
Now 89, confined mostly to a wheelchair and living in the same farmhouse where she was raped, Florence Holway has seen her solo campaign pay off, with the state legislature ushering in reforms to rape law.
This documentary, made for Home Box Office, charts Holway’s remarkable journey culminating in a parole hearing where she confronts her attacker face to face.
