During a nightly journey teenagers tell about the way in which domestic violence has defined their image of love, intimacy and parenthood. Associative images show the painful memories of the teens and the turning point to another life.

"My father beat me, he cursed me every day, this was everyday stuff for us." In a nocturnal setting teenagers tell personal stories about the effect domestic violence has had on their views of love, intimacy and parenthood. How do you reconcile the image of a loving parent with memories that hurt? Associative images show their painful memories, and their turning towards a different life.
