Can you forgive those who have harmed you?

One night on Christian youth camp, six-year-old Cynthia wanders into the woods with an unknown teenager. She wakes up naked, having been sexually assaulted and abandoned during the night. Plagued with guilt and a loss of faith, she reunites with her assailant 17 years later in a chance meeting. Is forgiveness a moral choice or simply her responsibility to God?
