No Place to Hide

Rehtaeh Parsons, a fifteen-year-old student from Nova Scotia, was raped by four schoolboys while drunk at a sleepover.

Through the eyes of her parents, this film re-examines these alarming events, which ultimately led to Rehtaeh's suicide. A shocking testament to police indifference, the stigma of sexual assault and the effects of cyber bullying.
