Victim Status/Статус жертвы

Through their stories of physical and psychological trauma, seven domestic violence victims and the film director talk about common behavior types in modern society. Every one of us could find ourselves, sooner or later, in this triangle: victim-aggressor-savior. The film suggests that no matter how terrible the situation is, one must take responsibility for one’s life and feel free to begin living and loving again.
