The Meeting is the latest feature drama from acclaimed director Alan Gilsenan. 

During an intense, meticulously prepared and highly charged encounter, a young woman finally gets answers to questions which have haunted her. Based upon a real-life meeting between a young sexual assault victim and her offender after his release from prison, The Meeting exposes the raw truth of a woman who refuses to sacrifice her personal freedom on the altar of an inadequate justice system. By facing the dark source of her aguish with courage and grace she is transformed in a way that will inspire anyone who has ever known fear.
