Combines an extremely compelling story about Kim, a brave young mother of three daughters, with an interesting background about the battered women's movement. A realistic documentary that doesn't avoid hard and difficult questions, but it's ultimately hopeful. It serves as a basic introduction to many important ideas about domestic violence, and there is a surprising and thought provoking twist at the end.
