Synopsis

While they were a couple, Steve exposed Attiya to terrifying daily verbal and physical abuse. As Steve puts it, he thought this is the only way to keep her by his side, but instead of doing this, he was actually pushing her away. Twenty years later, Attiya has asked Steve to meet. She wants to know whether he remembers their relationship and if he is willing to take responsibility for his violent actions.

This film could easily be called a criticism of traditional images regarding the victim and the abuser. It is unique, as there are no certain viewpoints in such a sensitive context; therefore, not the search for the guilty, but the search for the connection between cause and effect becomes the main point. But how not to lose empathy and impartiality in this journey towards forgiveness?
