About the film
“Every year, about 30,000 women worldwide are killed by their partners.” But there are also women whose escape from an abusive relationship has forced them into a situation that transforms them into murderers.
Due to their partners’ sadistic behaviour, Laura, Rachel and Rosalba were driven to kill them. Filmmaker Coco Schrijber approaches the protagonists’ rational motivations as the ultimate act of defiance, the culmination of the deeply rooted problem of contemporary toxic masculinity in relationships. The unique visual language combines metaphor with raw realism. Layered accounts of the relationship between love and rage – feelings that are repressed or amplified – are presented through an intense narrative using the techniques of documentary reconstruction, interview, random inquiry, and the use of archival materials. *The film contains drastic footage.
