A Truth in Silence (Una Verdad en Silencio)

United States

Felipe Pina Director


    Elizabeth is a young, vibrant mother.

    Recently married and pregnant, she encounters a situation no women should ever have to face.

    She finds herself under constant mental and physical abuse by her new husband Hector.

    The only peace found are the moments she is alone caring for her infant son Joseph.

    How much mistreatment can one endure when pushed too far? What will happen when that time comes? Based on real life events of writer and producer Felipe Piña’s mother, “A Truth in Silence” depicts one weekend unlike any other in her 17 years of domestic abuse.
