Pieces of Us is an intimate look at the personal journeys of LGBTQ + hate crime survivors who, by choosing to go public with their recovery, inspire the survivor in all of us. The film juxtaposes the inspiring stories of recovery that each of the film's subjects (including transgender activist and survivor of the Stonewall riots, Victoria Cruz, and Prince Manvendra Singh Gohil of India) have experienced with the powerful connections they make. their public actions have produced. Their stories take us to New York City, Denver, and India to witness how intersectionality and truth telling can build a supportive community and even spark global change. The film explores the resistance of these unlikely heroes and survivors, people who did not choose to have their rights violated and their lives changed forever, but from those experiences chose to oppose hatred and give voice to those who had no voice.
