Breaking the silence
January 25, 2018
Breaking The Silence is the true-life story of a Maltese little boy whose childhood unfolded through the English occupation of Malta, during the presence of the Royal Army on the island, then following later on in England, at the times of the Maltese post-war emigration.
It is a story of slavery and abuse. Of secrets kept hidden generation after generation, and sometimes taken to the realm of the eternal oblivion. Secrets never unveiled and buried in the tombs, in a resilient conspiracy of silence that surrounded him for fifty-six years. At the same time, it is a story of hope and redemption, of darkness that can turn into light when filtered through a good heart.
Evil can take on many faces and often the most horrid one is the one of Oblivion and Indifference. Silence can weigh on the wrong side and words can be the only weapon left.
