Jeannette gives an intimate and inspiring picture of a life interrupted but not destroyed by traumatic violence.

After surviving the tragic attack at Pulse, Jeannette is just trying to recover and continue with her life. Putting the pieces back together is hard but she takes comfort in her job as a personal trainer and in her community. A story anchored by Jeannette and her life and not by sensationalistic news footage, we see a woman supporting her family through tragedy in Puerto Rico while working toward her goal of becoming a bodybuilding champion and being a loving girlfriend and mother.
