Freshly washed shirts on a string, high heels and a vivid lipstick – everything that will make the partner happy. A moment of inattention is enough to provoke the man to aggression. Does the woman have a chance to defeat her perpetrator? In this macabre animation about domestic violence, Plucińska once again uses minimalist animation techniques and understatement to show the drama behind closed doors. Flashy background and alarm sounds constitute a cry for help, while the reproduction of building architecture elements draws attention to the enormous scale of the problem.
