Shane and Maggie. Domestic violence is a largely invisible crime. We hear it muffled through walls, and we usually only see it manifested in the faded yellow and purple bruises of a woman who “walked into a wall” or “fell down the stairs”. It is rarely limited to one event, and it rarely stops. “Shane and Maggie” takes a deeper, unflinching look at domestic abuse as a process, as opposed to a single incident, examining how a pattern of abuse develops and eventually peaks, as well as its short and long-term effects on victims, their families, and their abusers.
