This is an intimate tape in which two women
recall their painful early memories of sexual abuse.
Shown throughout the video, paintings done by Jean Burgess
act as a catalyst to explore her experience of incest.
Burgess and Boschman exchange information and impressions.
The video has a fragmented structure that
mirrors the hesitancy of participants
and the difficulty of the subject matter.
