Lost Girls of South Africa

nozuko

Nozuko, 13, was raped when she was just 10 by a neighbour.  He said he would kill her in the most brutal way imaginable if she told anyone, so like over 90% of child rape victims, she kept quiet.  She speaks of the rape for the first time ever on camera, and we then follow the family’s agonising decision as to whether or not they report it three years on.  Knowing that only 1% of rape allegations end in a conviction, her parents eventually decide against it - a decision they come to bitterly regret as months later it has tragic consequences.
