The documentary profiles Kori Cioca, a local southwestern Ohio woman was beaten and raped while in the Coast Guard. The documentary examines sexual assaults in the military—an offense that often goes unpunished.
Cioca’s trauma left her with post-traumatic stress, depression and flashbacks. She told the Cincinnati Enquirer that she was “already messed up for life.”
She is now a married mother of two children and still suffers from a dislocated jaw from one of two assaults by her supervisor. Also, she receives facial injections to help her eat.
Cioca said the Coast Guard didn’t pay to treat her jaw. Anonymous donors paid for her jaw treatment.
The documentary focuses on Department of Defense statistics involving thousands of sexual assaults.
