Plot

In this coming-of-age movie, we get to know the story of a young African American girl, Celie Harris, who battles through domestic violence, incest, pedophilia, poverty, racism and sexism.

Celie is transformed as she finds her self-worth through the help of two strong female companions.

The movie is a portrayal of events tempting you to act out emotions that Celie was forced by society to hide and endure. Breaking away from the bonds and setting themselves free, this story shows how they grow as companions and individuals to show their true powers as women.
