The story of Amanda Nguyen, the young woman who was raped as a college student at Harvard and went on to become a sexual assault activist, is coming to the big screen. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kelly Marie Tran will star in and produce the biopic about her friend, who founded civil rights accelerator Rise and wrote the Survivor’s Bill Of Rights.

“I am deeply grateful to Kelly Marie Tran, Madica Productions and Significant Productions for telling not only my story, but also the story of billions of survivors across the world who are fighting to have our voices heard and our rights recognized,” Nguyen said in a statement. “Stories are how we tell ourselves dreams are possible. Societal stigma silences rape survivors. My story is not mine alone. I hear from countless survivors the strength they gain from hearing other survivors share their story. My hope is that this will make them feel less alone. I am grateful to Kelly for her friendship, for her understanding of our shared Vietnamese American heritage and for her belief that this is a story worth telling.”
