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

When no one would listen
26 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just watched When No One Would Listen, and is sadly real life. Everyday woman are abused and terrorized by the man that promised to love and protect them. I was abused by my husband for the first four years of our marriage, broken bones, lots of bruises, a lot of tears. Fortunately for me, he went to counseling, and we're going into our ninth year of marriage. They say sometimes men don't change, and will always hit, but my husband did change, and continues to make up for it everyday. Abuse is the worst thing a woman can go through, and I think it's important to educate them and let them know that there are many options out there. Nobody deserves to be hit, nobody.
