Director Statement

I firmly believe that art is a tool for social change and a means to fight injustice. With this film, I want to force the audience to watch, to open their eyes, to pay attention, to be shaken and to feel uncomfortable with the story that unfolds; because in reality the situation is much more brutal, violent and heartbreaking. Reality suffocates you, but for women, reality kills them.

Abigail and Amanda are two victims, but they carry with them the names of some many others, so many that also deserve to be named, but are not.
