Small Small Thing: The Olivia Zinnah Story
Director: Jessica Vale
In December 2012, Olivia Zinnah died of complications from a rape injury caused when she was seven years old. After filmmaker Jessica Vale became personally involved with Olivia and her mother while working on another project in Monrovia, Liberia, her quest to film them became a mission of hope and medical help in a country where rape is the number one crime, and the majority of the victims are children.
