HOW SEXUAL ASSAULT REALLY HAPPENS.
1 in 10 people have been victims of sexual assault.
Over 80% of these victims know their attacker.
In almost 100% of these cases, the attacker uses a method called "grooming".
This film is about that.
Groomed follows the story of filmmaker Gwen van de Pas as she travels back to her home country of Holland to confront her past and decide whether to report the man who sexually abused her as a child. As she searches for answers, she reaches out to other survivors, psychological experts, and an offender serving 50 years in prison for sexual abuse. The film addresses what "Grooming" is, how to recognize it and - ultimately - how to stop it.
