A series that whose individual narratives add up to a powerful commentary about family and society. Each story sheds light on the dynamics of violence as it probes the extent to which violence has permeated our culture — something few seem able to see for what it is. Have we simply become inured to the violence that runs through so many of our day-to-day words, looks, attitudes, acts and power struggles? Who can say they have never uttered a word, committed an act or engaged in behaviour that could be considered violent? How many of us have never experienced violence firsthand? Who among us has never been bullied, disrespected or belittled in the context of an emotional relationship?
