This short drama explores violence in young relationships. Iona has suffered a violent incident and lost consciousness. She struggles to recall how it happened, and when her mother tells her it was inflicted by her indie rock musician boyfriend, Iona refuses to believe it. To find out herself, she returns to the location of her last memory, his funky warehouse apartment and confronts him. The participation of both families in a talking circle helps to increase the awareness of the moment of choice faced when the urge to be violent surfaces and to begin the process of healing.
