Stigmas of the life

On this film I tried to get to the heart of parental violence and what it leads to in the adult life of abused children. Domestic violence is a known case among families around the world. however, it is not very readily discussed, even in feature films, not to mention documentaries. Here we have a story of a boy who had a difficult childhood, he was tortured by his father, he had no mother, he was brought up only by his father / tyrant.
