This award-winning 1-hour documentary details a scientific study that stunned the medical community. Researchers discovered that Adverse Childhood Events (ACEs) increase the risk of developing obesity, heart disease, depression, and other medical impairments as an adult. But the cycle can be broken! Learn how communities have addressed childhood trauma, helped improve lives, and reduced behavioral referrals, bullying, crime, and youth suicide through resiliency.

After the movie, we invite you to participate in a Q&A discussion with local organizations and service providers working to address trauma within the Flint community.
