A behind the scenes look at Sin by Silence was in People Magazine's January 2010 issue. As part of the "Amazing Reunions" article, the story of how Brenda Clubine lost her son upon incarceration was highlighted. As shown in a scene of Sin by Silence, a phone call connected them after nearly 26 years of being a part. The glue that brought their reunion together was actually the production of Sin by Silence when Olivia Klaus, the director of the film, got a phone call from Brenda's son while on his quest to find his mother. The QLP team was then able to play a key role in reuniting a mother and son together, while also capturing this amazing journey for what becomes a beautiful ending to such a tragic story.

And for the founder of CWAA, the flicker of hope begins to grow as her possible freedom, after 26 years in prison, lies moments away.
