Check out the trailer for the powerful documentary Groomed directed by Gwen van de Pas, now streaming on discovery+.
Groomed is the devastatingly powerful story of filmmaker Gwen van de Pas as she returns to her hometown in search of answers about the man who sexually abused her as a child.
To understand her ongoing traumas, Gwen travels to meet survivors, psychologists, and even a convicted sex offender. Produced by Gwen van de Pas, Bill Guttentag, and Dylan Nelson, Groomed addresses a common yet little understood manipulation type called ‘grooming’, how to recognize it, and how to stop it.
What begins as an exploration into grooming becomes a dramatic journey where Gwen faces unexpected revelations in her case, finally finds her anger, and boldly confronts the evil we’d rather ignore.
