"Breaking The Bones Of Buried Trauma" A DV Short


All proceeds will go to the making of "Off The Floor, Into The Mirror" A Domestic Violence Short Film/True Story.

Tagline: Breaking The Bones Of Buried Trauma.  

"For one woman it was life as usual until she found herself laying on the floor at work. Impacted by more than vertigo, her life spun out of control revealing wounds that would no longer remain hidden. Off the Floor, Into the Mirror examines these shattered pieces of buried trauma as Tonya works to retrieve, expose and heal her abusive past.

In 2017 I was experiencing overwhelming vertigo. Once I started investigating the source I was taken down an unforeseen road. Two years later after seeing numerous specialists I heard the words "How much trauma have you had to your face"? I sat there in shock as that all took place 26 years ago. He then said "You need reconstructive, possibly plastic surgery." Over the next 6 months leading up to my surgery I had numerous flashbacks. I started piecing together what had actually happened to me. I started to realize how difficult it was going to be for me to travel down this road back in time. My panic and anxiety was at an all time high. I knew I needed to channel all these devastating feelings into something positive. That is when I decided to share my story. I want to help others heal while I heal myself. I would really appreciate any help you can give to help me reach my funding goal.  Please share my fundraiser, every little bit helps.
Thank you in advance,
