Pardoned Souls reminds us that looks can be deceiving and takes us through the childhood conflict in two young girls’ lives. One is an obvious ill-tempered bully. One a seemingly meek and docile pushover. It makes us look closer and listen harder. Its infectious sense of inner strength makes us find our own inner strength regardless of circumstances. We see a woman take a childhood lesson and grow into a person who stands for what is right and just, regardless of past mistakes. We see forgiveness, one of the hardest emotions there is to give and bestow upon ourselves. We see it bloom because of one little girl.
