After 20 years of living in Washington, D.C., Mark Klein seeks much-needed solace by moving to the remote wilds of West Virginia. To ease his loneliness, he sends regular video updates to members of his OCD-support group back in the city. But Mark gradually realizes that despite his new, isolated setting, he may not be alone. From the endless woods surrounding his home, something else is watching.
DOMESTIC VIOLENCE was filmed in Tampa, Florida. The film shows the police responding to domestic violence calls and the work of The Spring, the principal shelter in Tampa for women and children. Sequences with the police include police response, intervention, and attempted resolution of domestic violence calls. Sequences at the shelter include intake interviews, individual counseling sessions, anger management training, group therapy, staff meetings, and conversations among clients and between clients and staff. Since two thirds of the residents at the shelter are children, the film also has sequences of school activities, therapy sessions for children where domestic violence is discussed, and counseling for parents and children organized around childrens issues and experiences with domestic violence.
