WHEREVER YOU GO

Domestic abuse is not an easy thing to experience, especially not an easy thing to tell. This film contains three actual representations of domestic abuse, and the hopeful advice that is given. Do not be ashamed of your story, for it can inspire others, and never lose hope. Wherever you go, go with all your heart (Confucius). You can get help, you have a choice, and there is always hope. Once you choose hope, anything is possible.

Director Statement

Every night, every day, every afternoon someone is suffering from domestic abuse. It's one of the longest running issues in society and it still exists to this day. One of the problems about domestic abuse besides its existence is the lack of attention given to other versions of it. Domestic abuse occurs in all types of relationships. Man against woman, woman against man, man against man are just some of the types of relationships which suffer from this problem, and we address this in the video. We felt the best way to display this was in a direct form, showing everybody just a glimpse of what can happen in these situations. Our goal was to point out this saddening issue to educate to everyone that it can happen to anyone and we should all unite to fight against it. Don't judge someone based on who they are whether or not they are/can be abused. It can happen in anyway to anyone.
