Miss Israel Linor Abargil was abducted, stabbed, and raped at age 18. She had to represent her country in the Miss World competition only 6 weeks later. When to her shock she was crowned the winner, she vowed to one day speak out about rape. This verité film follows Linor’s global travels as she reaches out to other survivors -- from American college campuses to the townships of South Africa. But Linor’s own rape comes back to haunt her when her serial rapist becomes eligible for parole. Brave Miss World follows a remarkable young woman willing to use her own rape as a case study to help others, even while racing against the clock to find her rapists’ previous victims who may be able to help her keep him in prison.
