LIFE IS LOVE SYNOPSIS
Heroes lead with their heart. Experience an empowering journey with the inspirational Somaly Mam and some amazing young heroes. In the wake of important and highly entertaining feature docs like THE FOG OF WAR, MURDERBALL and AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH, Cinequest Mavericks Studio presents LIFE IS LOVE, the highly uplifting feature film about a group of inspirational women who have triumphed over severe adversity to transform their world. Arguably the world's most impactful leader in the movement to free and transform girls from the ravages of human trafficking, Somaly Mam, a survivor and empowered inspiration, signs her books: "Life Is Love." Cinequest knew we must give voice to the young girls with whom Somaly is working to further heal and to help other young women around the globe. What we didn’t know is their stories would fuel a most inspiring movie about how any of us can meet a challenge and emerge living a life of love.
