The movie explains that prevention begins with empowering children, asking the right questions and parents opening the line of communication with toddlers.

Jones-Mulraine says she hopes viewers and victims watch the screening so they can start the road to recovery.

The KHCC will have a number of events this month, including a presentation by Lehman College students and Denim Day.
