RECOVERING IRMA

Project Synopsis:

Fifteen years ago, Sandra Salas' father killed her mother Irma and then killed himself, ending a horrific generation of family domestic violence. On the day of Irma’s funeral in 1995, the surviving members of the Salas family – 5 brothers and sisters – made a vow that the domestic dysfunction that took both their parents’ lives would end with them.  But today, confronted with her nephew Lorenzo’s arrest for domestic violence, Sandra knows that the cycle has not been broken, and now she has to act. The result is Recovering Irma, a documentary that charges directly towards a family disease that haunts their daily lives.
