Her husband and 13-year-old daughter were murdered two years ago in the Mubai terrorist attacks, while they huddled together under a table in the Oberoi Hotel restaurant.

Now, watch Kia Scherr as she returns to Mumbai for the first time to complete her own journey of healing and forgiveness and to share her message of compassion with the city and the world.
