Where do you go…who do you turn to…when home is where the harm is? Living with family violence, young mother Kitty and her son Tom create a fort that transports them to imaginary lands that provide an escape from the hostilities they face at home. But, when reality overtakes make-believe they discover the fantasy world that provides them with sanctuary can’t protect them forever.
