Mirror Images looks at domestic violence and alcoholism in an Aboriginal family.
The film is a short drama that captures the story from the angle of the abuser then within this situation explores the emotion and reasoning behind why he abuses his family.
"I was looking in the mirror the other day and I saw him… I saw the wreck that he had become and then I saw Jimmy."
"A boy's innocence is torn between his mother and father. A mother's love for her family is torn between her son's future and husband's present. A father's past has torn him from his family. "
