The paper focuses on the effect of trauma based on the movie Hope Floats directed by Forest Whitaker and released in 1998. The central character Birdee Pruitt (nee Calvert) played by Sandra Bullock has been taken for study for the paper. The paper focuses on the three different kinds of traumas that she faces, the effects caused by each, the consequences faced and the resulting rejuvenation. The 'trauma theory' has been applied to the movie as the theoretical framework of the paper in order to analyze the central character. The paper examines if trauma helps overcome a previous traumatic experience and the cause and effect thereby involved during the process. © Serials Publications.
