A week in the life of a woman trying to leave her physically-abusive husband. The documentary begins three days after Anna’s estranged husband has threatened to kill her and their baby at gunpoint. Anna keeps an audio journal of her attempt to have her husband, who she says beat her repeatedly before they separated, arrested. She tells of her frustration with the police and legal system and of her attempt to live a “‘normal life.”
