Male-on-male and female-on-male rape in the U.S. military are not a myths. Survivors of this horrific crime tell their stories in this documentary feature film. It offers three goals. One: Let others know it is okay to come forward and get treatment. Two: Offer treatment alternatives. Three: Change the existing procedures to make reporting of these crimes safer for the survivors. According to the Department of Defense’s own statistics, over three thousand cases were reported in 2010 at a rate of 13.5. Using that ratio, former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta estimated an assault rate of nineteen thousand cases a year. It’s time to STOP this life changing threat to our fighting men and women. Their stories need to be heard.
