We Do Recover and Recovery is Real
Verified purchase
This is a powerful message of hope for anyone in and seeking recovery as well as allies and family members who have had experience with substance use disorder. Thank you Lucy for bringing this amazing story to the public. Thank you for living your recovery out loud so that others can get and stay well!
The only negative comment I have is that Neil Campbell's section was not edited to align Audio with Video. Neil Campbell and GCSA are extremely important pieces to this story and I wish that the editing had been better so that there was no distraction during the conversation between Lucy and Neil.

Real Hope
Verified purchase
Hope has arrived. One cannot say enough about this documentary, as it would truly be an understatement. A program run by professionals who have lived the life experience, instead of individuals in white coats with medical degrees and PhD certificates plastered on their walls, is key to recovery. Thank God for Ms. Lucy.

Very Inspiring

This was a very inspiring documentary and shows how one person can truly make a difference. If we all decided to reach out to others and be less self-focused - what a world it would be :)

Your past is the past. Your future is what you make with what you have been given.

I'm always poking in people's trash and climbing into dumpsters. I salvage, clean up and fix whatever I can to be put back to good use in the world. It is very satisfying, but I do that with objects. Lucy Hall and her team does that with HUMAN BEINGS, specifically women who are at the bottom - the REAL bottom.. God bless her and her crew. His plan is their plan is our plan. I pray.

For everyone to watch! Recovery does exist and this film shows what it looks like.
I had the pleasure of watching this film at a film festival in Los Angeles and remember feeling an urgency to tell everyone about it for weeks to follow. It is not often that films have that profound affect on me but after watching Hope Village, crying, laughing and feeling encourage all the while, I was left with so much hope for what proper recovery programs can do for the community. Having been a grant writer for non profits for many years, some of which do similar work, I am so In awe of the work the facility chronicled in the film has been able to accomplish. If more funders and grantors can be introduced to films like this, there is a potential to broaden the success rate of recovery centers nation wide. Likely, if more individuals battling addiction see films like this, they will see that recovery really does exist if the right steps are taken. Well done Sunwise Media!

Uplifting is an understatement
I caught this at a festival screening. There are people in our world who save themselves and then go on to save others. Lucy Hall, the person this film is about, is one of the those people. Of course, the film is not really about Lucy. It's about the incredible impact she has had on literally thousands of women. Though a doc by definition, filmmaker Rikarlo Handy's handiwork (sorry for the pun) weaves dramatic segments throughout so that the film's pace moves along nicely as it empowers viewers all along the way to take charge and make a difference. The log line for the film has been that Lucy Hall is a Hope Dealer. She is definitely that.

This is what hope looks like
This film gets down to brass tacks about recovery and what that ongoing experience can be like for women. This documentary honors the stories of the individual women profiled in Lucy Hall’s program. It’s amazing to see how much she has touched and continues to change so many lives. The struggles and different stages of recovery are treated with great respect and Lucy Hall’s approach lets these women know they are not forgotten.
