Domestic abuse is a dark shadow that lives in the heart of Australian society, including regional and rural communities. This must be brought to light by those willing to speak out about these atrocities to create powerful and ever lasting change.
To survive and grow economically is often challenging enough for our regional country towns but there is a hidden pain and illness that lies beneath the face of such beautiful places as many women and men suffer in silence from domestic abuse. One little town in far west NSW are using their voices as the weapons in which too battle this violence and create an ever lasting change for future generations.
Narrating this documentary is Peter Garrett, formerly lead singer of the legendary band Midnight Oil, politician, and now author. Peter stresses his great concern about the domestic violence epidemic we have in regional, rural and remote Australia. Through Peter’s narration and the stories of the people from these towns, the film expresses sadness, anger, fear and ultimately hope.
