Domestic Violence exposed in all it's ugliness ...

A very believable telling of one woman's descent into hell on earth. The frightening thought - is it happening next door to you too? The film does not skim over the gory details - be prepared. Low budget, not glossy, but definitely makes it's point. The one thing marginally lacking, given the enlightened 90's, is an acknowledgment that spousal violence, as wrong as it is, is an offense committed by both genders.
