Maya Angelou once said, “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” Silent Waves tells one true story led by 25-year-old Raquel O’Brien, as she attempts to liberate herself from the trauma of childhood sexual abuse and a father with a dark secret. To do so, she has raw, honest and open conversations with her family about the cataclysmic circumstances of their story for the first time… and all on tape. What emerges is a larger story as her previously fractured family, emboldened by being interviewed, find the freedom to confront their conflicting versions of the events and reconcile with it and each other. Silent Waves is produced by Raquel O’Brien and Georgina Savage in partnership with Nearly Media.
