Beyond Belief

Two woman, both pregnant, who have never met, loose their husbands on Sept 11th, 2001.

This documentary follows Pattie Quigley and Susan Retik as they meet and together try to move beyond hatred and find hope in tragedy. Together they reach out to women in Afghanistan who have been widowed by the violence there. This film is both heart wrenching and inspiring as you watch these women journey through their grief, struggle with loneliness, riding their bicycles from ground zero to their home in Boston and eventually find gratitude and meaning as they travel across the world to meet their counterparts in Afghanistan.
