About The Movie
Wrestling Ghosts follows the epic inner journey of a young mother, who, over two heart-breaking and inspiring years, battles the traumas from her past in order to create a new present and future for her and her family.
Kim knows she is not a natural mother — she shrinks from the touch of her adorable little boys. At thirty, she is married to her high school sweetheart Matt and living on the ragged edge of the middle class. Faced with a constant inner reproach — What is wrong with me? — she embarks on an extremely difficult journey to overcome her unhappiness and become able to give her kids the warmth and attention they deserve.
Over the course of two years, Kim digs deeper and deeper, and makes important progress, but deep down she remains stuck. She only makes a breakthrough when she learns about the new science of childhood trauma, how it physically changes the human brain, creating a neurological straightjacket of sorts.
With relentless self-awareness, amazing openness, and devastating honesty, this extraordinary ordinary woman becomes a real soul warrior, doing battle with the traumas in her past in order to create a new present and future for her and her family
