Movie Info

Based on the true story of Tracey Thurman, this is a scathing indictment of police complicity in spousal abuse. A battered wife repeatedly tries to get help from the police when she is continuously harassed and physically abused by her estranged husband. Denied their help, she is attacked in broad daylight, as the police just look on and do not go to her aid. She is nearly killed in the attack and afterwards started a precedent-setting lawsuit against the police for their lack of assistance when she was attacked.more

Audience Reviews for A Cry for Help: The Tracey Thurman Story

Very graphic, grisly story of a woman who was subjected to domestic abuse by her husband, abuse that could (and should) have been prevented. Hard-hitting and memorable.

I just saw this True Story again recently.The Police didn't help her, she endured this abuse over & over.It took her being Stabbed 13 times, & her head stomped in in front of a Cop & her Child , & him telling them that he killed her(but he left her in a Wheel Chair) for them finally to pass laws to protect women from Abuse, Rape, & Stalking.This Woman made he Ultimate Sacrifices & had to Sue the Police Dept. & City to get Laws in Place.Bless Her Poor Battered Soul & Body !

Oh my god.....this movie was so brutal.....and the fact that it was a true story.....just makes you sick to your stomach....you can always say what you would do if you were is certain situations....but this was just awful and the situation should have been taking care of before what happened happened....this movie is not for the faint of heart.....
