North American Premiere on February 23, 2014.

Liz Miller’s documentary is set in Nicaragua, a small country with a revolutionary history. The film profiles an inspiring women’s rights group, Puntos de Encuentro (Puntos) as it works to end sexual violence at home, in bed and in the streets. Puntos has created a mainstream family television drama, Contracorriente (Turning the Tide) to educate communities on a range of issues including gender violence. The series has already gained over a million viewers across half a dozen countries in Central America and the Caribbean and the television program is at the center of a campaign to prevent the growing wave of sexual exploitation and trafficking across the region.
