One in three women in America have been abused by a partner, now FRONTLINE and Independent Lens tell the story of one of theses survivors. Kind Hearted Woman is an unforgettable portrait of Robin Charboneau, a single mother and Ogala Sioux woman fighting to heal from sexual and domestic abuse and build a better life for her and her family. The program looks at critical issues including sexual abuse, domestic violence, alcoholism, and the struggles to improve oneself and the lives of our families. FRONTLINE continues its commitment to deep investigative journalism with this program by following the story on the reservation, in the courts, and in Washington. Independent Lens believes that powerful, intimate, character-driven stories like Kind Hearted Woman help viewers better understand today’s complex world by taking them to places they wouldn’t otherwise see and encountering people they wouldn’t otherwise meet. Directed by filmmaker David Sutherland, this remarkable story is now available for free viewing online.
