Marking the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attack on London on 7 July 2005, this poignant film explores universal themes of grief, loss and forgiveness and one woman's response to her daughter's death in the bombings. Julie Nicholson's daughter Jenny died in 7/7 - killed on her way to work when a bomb exploded at Edgware Road Underground station. What gave Julie particular prominence in the media at the time was that not only was she a mother but that she was a vicar - and moreover a vicar who found herself unable to forgive the perpetrators of her daughter's violent death.
With raw immediacy and unflinching honesty, the film revisits the horrific events as they unfold, and reveals a family torn apart by this tragic act of violence - from the moment the bombings first hit the news, through the harrowing days spent searching for her to a heart-breaking attempt, along with Jenny's devastated partner, to discover the truth about her final moments. In the wake of her daughter's death, Julie's despair and anger would ultimately shake the foundations of her family and life. How could she come to terms with the legacy of this act of violence? Peopled with extraordinary individuals and gut-wrenching events, this is a profound and intimate account - one that gives a potently honest voice to the suffering of anyone who has lost a loved-one in an act of indiscriminate violence.
