Black background with white words: Taking Responsibility.
A woman and a young girl hurries across a room in a house. An angry-looking man follows them.
A woman is jogging then stops in front of a house with the door open. The woman and young girl are attempting to leave, but the man grabs her and pushes her back inside. A suitcase falls down the front steps. The door slams shut. The jogger shakes her head and starts running again.
A woman drives along in a black jeep. She stops in front of the same house and peeks out through her car window. She witnesses the woman and young girl attempting to leave. The man grabs her and pushes her back inside. The driver drives on.
A close up scene of the woman and young girl attempting to leave. The man grabs her by the throat and pushes her back in. He closes the door with his other arm. A woman (a friend) walks up the door, looks unsure, then walks away.
A black screen appears with the text "A few ____ later." Pink words appear, making it "A few hours later."
The driver drives past the house again and sees the door open with the woman on the floor, covered in bruises with an EMT tending to her. A close up shot of the woman's face shows her being badly beaten. The EMT is feeling her pulse. The driver looks distraught.
A black screen appears with the text "A few ____ later." Pink words appear, making it "A few weeks later."
The jogger runs along a graveyard. She stops and starts walking toward a tombstone, looking shocked. She looks very upset, with her hands on her legs. A framed picture of the woman is in front of it. The jogger looks extremely upset.
A black screen appears with the text "A few ____ later." Pink words appear, making it "A few months later."
The scene appears to be a party. A man and a woman are chatting and laughing. Suddenly, the man (abuser) appears, grabs the woman's arm, and leads her away. The (new) woman looks sad and defeated. The friend looks on.
A man in plaid shirt appears in black and white. He signs "You're responsible too." with white text appearing.
Everything appears in reverse (the party scene, the graveyard scene, the EMT scene.)
A black screen appears with the text "Community Accountability."
The same scene is shown with the woman and young girl attempting to leave. The jogger intervenes this time and helps them leave. The jogger leaves while the abuser looks on.
A black screen appears with the text "Call 911/e911."
The woman in the black jeep makes a phone call. The abuser is shown being led out of the house by a police officer.
A black screen appears with the text "Give support."
The woman and the friend are sitting together. It appears to be an office or a courtroom. An U.S. flag is next to them. The abuser is in handcuffs, being led by a officer. The woman (survivor) looks nervous with the friend holding her arm.
A black screen appears with the text "Community Accountability." The text fades. New text appears: "begins with" "you."
DeafHope's logo appears. It is a drawing of a woman holding an infant with one hand and signing ILY with another. Text appears: "Our mission at DeafHope is to end domestic and sexual violence against Deaf women and children through empowerment, education, and services."
"Join DeafHope's effort to end violence against women."
Logos for Blue Shield of California and Verizon Foundation appear.[+] Show More
