Breaking and Entering (2009)

Breaking and Entering is a film that follows the story of a girl who was naive enough to trust someone who abused her and then abandoned her. It shows how the experience affected the victim and how she heals her wounds and moves on, becoming a survivor.

The visuals are accompanied by her voice, talking to her abuser.

It is about closure and purification. It is an experimental film meant to disturb and move its audience to create empathy for the victim but also to create an understanding for the abuser.
