The FJC and The BME forum present this twenty-minute short film aims to offer a glimpse into the long and arduous process of safely leaving an abusive relationship, as well as confront the deep-rooted social misconception that those living with domestic violence ‘should just walk away’. Leaving is a powerful and multi award-winning short film drama that tells the story of Helen (Kierston Wareing, BAFTA Best Actress Nominee - Ken Loache’s It’s a Free World), and her attempt to break free from her violent husband Jim (Johnny Harris, Paul Andrew Williams’ London To Brighton).
