Before I made this film, I worked as a counselor for women fleeing violence. My work in this field has inspired me so much, but it also makes me angry how much weight women have had to carry in the movement to end violence against us.
I think hearing from people who are working to end their violence, and the people who are helping them change, shifts some of the weight off the shoulders of survivors and reminds us all where the responsibility to end violence really lies. During the making of the film I started to heal. Every time I would sit down with Steve, I would feel some of my pain, decades of pain stored in my body being lifted.

My team created a discussion guide to help groups of men to watch the film and discuss how it might apply to their own lives and relationship.
