STEM The Movement – THE FILM

STEM tells the story of three women's courageous journey from tragedy to triumph. It blends the past with the present featuring true-life stories of faith, in the midst of adversity and victory against all odds. Stem uses comedy and drama to tackle issues that are rarely given a voice such as infertility, caring for a parent with Alzheimer’s, the pain of divorce and aging. The testimonies in Stem are raw and transparent, offering viewers a soul-level connection and the inspiration to not only persevere but to overcome. In this fast paced world of shallow, quick fix remedies, Stem goes deep to the root of our pain and reminds us that we are not alone. Yes, STEM is a docu-dramedy, but more than that, Stem is a movement that provides a safe place of healing and a sanctuary of shared truth.
