On May 4, 2014, Norma Bastidas, a single mother and fearless survivor
of human trafficking, sexual violence, abuse and addiction, shattered
the Guinness World Record for longest triathlon by running, biking,
and swimming 3,762 miles (6,054 km) from Cancún, Mexico to Washington
D.C. as her stand against human trafficking. Norma’s mission is to
educate and empower, demonstrating to the world that one’s past does
not dictate one’s future, and prove that everyday people are capable
of making extraordinary strides in the fight against the problems
facing the world today.
Be Relentless is the binational, bilingual, feature-length documentary
that captured every grueling step of Norma’s record-breaking
expedition across two countries. Through Norma’s persistence, Be
Relentless proves that everyday people can make an extraordinary
impact in seemingly unchallengeable issues.
Be Relentless will capture conversation about the realities of child
trafficking, inspire the world to address this issue, prevent what
happened to Norma from happening to others, and prove to survivors and
the to world that one’s past doesn’t dictate one’s future.
