Documentary filmmaker Sanam sets out to capture a story of extreme domestic violence through an objective lens but finds herself becoming unsettled by familiar and escalating echoes in her own relationship. Both women, cities and lives apart, are bound by veiled and insidious acts of control from the men they married.
Through multimedia storytelling, Echoes from Far Away Cities courageously explores how impunity, silence, stigma and shame keep domestic violence as one of the most persistent and devastating global human rights violations today.
