Storyline

Jessica has been married to her controlling husband Gary for years. She began dating him at the age of fifteen and has two kids, Maggie and Pete. After some career trouble Gary moves the family out to a New York suburb. Anyway, at first Gary seems like a sweet and loving husband, but after getting mad at some hippie neighbors he begins slapping Jessica and having fits of rage. The abuse only gets worse when she gets a job at a bakery and makes two really caring friends: her co-worker and neighbor Lee, and her boss Walter. Walter becomes more than just her boss; he notices bruises on Jessica's neck and advises her to leave Gary, but she can't; she's too afraid. Soon she starts dating Walter, and when Gary punches Pete repeatedly she realizes she has to be the voice for her two kids; she takes them to stay with Walter. Things only get worse as Gary makes a decision that could send her life crashing down. Written by GasmaskProductionsBooks

Highly recommend this movie for an insight into domestic violence
10 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I teach an 8th grade health class. One of the units we do is on abuse, including domestic violence. I show this movie to my students during that unit, as they are able to see how the abuse not only affects the victim, and the lengths the abuser will go to, to achieve their goals, but the students also see how the abuse affects the children in the family. The movie also depicts how others in society (family, friends, law officials, the court systems) approach the topic of abuse/domestic violence. My students thoroughly enjoy this movie, gaining terrific insight into abuse. It is very much true-to-life, and it was as a result of this case that domestic violence laws were enacted. I highly recommend this movie for all ages.
