Short film trailer

What makes a man hit a woman? What drives him to that raging point where the only way he can communicate with her is through a clenched fist pounding her face? Continuously. Can a man ever be justified in taking such action?

Why doesn’t she leave him? Despite the black eyes and blue-bruised skin, why does she choose to stay? Love? Fear? Shame? She knows this won’t be the last time. She knows he will hit her again. Then why doesn’t she leave him?

Lagos based Nigerian film-maker Soji Ogunnaike presents “When Fishes Drown” an exploration of domestic violence through film.
