synopsis
I am THEM is a series of short films that explores the pivotal turning points for three different women. In the first film, a woman reveals the role she played in an assisted suicide. In the second film, a different woman in order to have a trusting relationship reveals that she was sexually abused, and in the third, a woman with cancer decides that rather than focusing her energy on trying to “beat” the disease, she will choose to be empowered living with it.
