    I wanted to make a film where the audience would be left with ‘a problem’ to deal with; The problem of the damage caused to children when they are repeatedly witness to domestic abuse.

    I intended the film to engage the viewer on a visceral level, to be cinematic - for the audience to be drawn into the child’s experience; his perception of his mother’s abusive relationship, his need for familial warmth and his powerlessness to protect his mother. This perspective would be counterpoint to his mother’s dismissal of both his distress, and the increasing friction between him and her lover.
