About the Film

This story is about a young boy who witnesses his mother’s abuse by the hands of his father throughout his childhood. The boy loves his mother but is not capable of protecting his mother from the raging anger his father seems to always inflict upon her.

As the boy grows into a wealthy and successful man, he recognizes the influence he has now. He does not recognize the effects his abusive childhood had on him and uses his influence to inflict pain upon others. Instead of using his power in a positive way for his family, he uses his intimidation and entitlement to achieve further success.

Rather than ending the abusive cycle his father had started, he falls prey to the love for abuse. He abuses his wife and forces himself sexually on her every night. One day, while holding his wife victim to a knife, he gets an epiphany. Standing in front of a mirror, he sees his reflection and realizes that he has become just like his father. He makes a decision that he will end this generation curse once and for all. He begins by doing right by everyone whom once he had wronged, praying they have forgiveness in their heart for him.
