The filmmaker and her former partner confront the abuse she suffered in their relationship.

I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
While they were a couple, Steve exposed Attiya to terrifying daily verbal and physical abuse. Twenty years later, they revisit their relationship in an intimate, therapeutic context, walking through the physical – and emotional – spaces they once inhabited together. As Steve is put in a position to acknowledge and take responsibility for the abuse, will Attiya complete her long process of healing and be liberated from her demons? Her deeply intimate film explores the revelatory potential of involving the abuser in domestic violence prevention.
