In South Africa reports of rape and abuse of women and children sadly, are not uncommon.

What is rare, however, is Lucy Witt’s courageous and unwavering dissection of the grooming process, the abuse, and surviving the aftermath.

Repeatedly raped by her stepfather, her confrontations with him in her adult years are thought-provoking, a quest for meaning, not retribution. Initially reluctant to be filmed, his inclusion allows a frank and chilling expose of how sexual predators “work”.

Dr Marcel Londt, a social worker specialising in child sexual abuse, provides insight, a sobering warning and some solace for survivors.
