Susan Retik and Patti Quigley were two ordinary soccer moms living in the affluent suburbs of Boston until the tragedy of September 11 struck. Rather than turn inward, grief compelled these women to focus on empowering widows in the country where the terrorists who took their husbands’ lives were trained: Afghanistan.
As Susan and Patti make the courageous journey from their comfortable neighborhoods to the most desperate Afghan villages, they discover a powerful bond with each other, an unlikely kinship with widows halfway around the world, and a profound way to move beyond tragedy. From the ruins of the World Trade Center to Kabul and back, Beyond Belief is a journey of personal strength, international reconciliation and a testament to the vision that peace can be forged… one woman at a time.
“A moving and beautiful film!”
-Khaled Hosseini, author of The Kite Runner
“A truly remarkable story.”
-New York Magazine
“Beyond Belief, a documentary film by Beth Murphy is truly beyond belief. This independent film documents the story of two 9/11 widows who decide to truly make a difference in the world and shows that something good can come from tragedy. This is a must-see DVD. The contents are suitable for everyone. The film stirs the emotions and is sad, joyful, thought provoking, and much more.”
