1 in 3 women have or will be a victim of domestic violence in her lifetime. That’s a staggering statistic. Ophelia Metz is one of those women. When she opts to leave her cycle of violence, with her two children, she finds she has no place else to go, but into shelter. Sydell Thomas, a shelter worker, becomes Ophelia’s Advocate upon her arrival. Slowly, it is revealed that Sydell’s life is not unlike the lives of the women who come into shelter — it's closer than she thinks.
