This is a portrait of a brave woman.
Shannon Graham, who was the victim of sexual assault, successfully fought to have a publication ban on her lifted following the conviction of her then common-law spouse.
Despite the ostensibly successful trial where her assailant was sentenced to two and a half years in prison, the legal process has been punishing on Graham. At every juncture, Graham said her attacker was given the benefit of the doubt, while she was treated simply “like a piece of evidence”.
Graham says her goal is to now reclaim her name and identity so she can tell her story her way.
