'Refuge' provides a unique, unprecedented glimpse into the day-to-day life of women in shelters for domestic violence victims. The film portrays a year in the life of residents, and shelter staff, in three shelters with vastly different populations, ethnicities and religious inclinations. It documents a feminine togetherness which, in spite of tough circumstances, produces an empowering, stimulating and inspiring incubator. In the #MeToo era, the voice of women being abused and attacked on a daily basis, and taking back control of their lives, can now be heard.
