From the Back Cover
In Forgiveness, acclaimed producer and director Helen Whitney covers a compelling range of stories from adultery and personal betrayal to reconciliation after genocide; the struggle of 1960s radicals to cope with the consequences of violent acts of protest; families fractured by abandonment; and the spontaneous demonstration of forgiveness following the shooting of Amish children at Nickel Mines. With sensitivity and insight, Whitney explores why the process and discussion of forgiveness seems to dominate our culture, and its power, its limitations, and in some instances, its dangers.
