“HATE WILL NOT HAVE THE LAST WORD”

Inspired by a true story, this moving drama follows a group known as the Women of Lockerbie – determined to turn an act of hatred into an act of love. The story begins with a couple trying to gain closure after the death of their son in the terrorist bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. They meet the Women of Lockerbie, who want to wash the clothes of the dead and return them to the victims’ families. The Women of Lockerbie is a poetic drama about the triumph of love over hate – amid one of the first tragedies of terrorism that shaped the world we live in.
