Therese Bartholomew (speaker) and screening of the film, The Final Gift
The Final Gift follows director and producer Therese Bartholomew’s seven-year pursuit to find meaning in her brother’s murder – and her historic meeting with his killer in a South Carolina prison.
While completing the memoir, Coffee Shop God, Bartholomew was drawn to the story and voice of her brother’s killer. She questioned – what was his life like before the night he shot Steve? What is his life like now in prison, and what will life be like for him once he is released?
Bartholomew’s film seeks to answer these questions and to make sense of the tragedy that will forever link her to the young man who killed her brother.
The film addresses universal ideas of forgiveness and redemption as well as the larger societal questions – how do we make peace with crime, support the victims, and restore the offenders?
