While maintaining the appearance of clinical objectivity, this sad, occasionally horrifying but often inspiring film is among Wiseman's warmest.

Examines its explosive subject matter as nonjudgmentally as Wiseman's previous studies of inner-city high schools, hospitals, courts and welfare centers.
| Original Score: 3/4

Wiseman is patient and uncompromising, letting his camera observe and record the lives of women torn apart by a legacy of abuse.

So why is Wiseman afraid to call this 'violence against women' in such a lengthy expose?
