Two people are standing, facing each-other, holding hands. Their gender is not discernible, it could be a heterosexual, lesbian or gay couple. Love stories have happy beginnings, and this one is no exception, loveliness explodes all around the blissful couple. Suddenly, this love story takes a wrong turn and heads towards a dark place, where one person is the victim and the other turns into the perpetrator of domestic violence. The hardest part of being a victim is to acknowledge the abuse and to react, but hoping that things will change and return to that first moment of happiness prevent victims from seeking help.
