About Blackbird

A 27-year-old woman tracks down the man who sexually abused her 15 years prior. In the mean time, he’s done his time in prison and started to rebuild his life. In 80 minutes in real time, two people relive the past and fight for their lives as they try to figure out how to move on—if that’s even possible.

"Both [of the characters] have read deep in the psychological literature of sexual abuse, and it doesn’t begin to encompass what they experienced. The miracle of “Blackbird” is that it does." - The New York Times
