SCENE 1 Bryan Sim (child) holds a stack of papers, rushing towards the parents’ waiting area. He bumps into his form teacher. The papers go flying and his teacher (Mrs Lim) bends down to help him gather them. She notices that the papers are full of beautiful sketchaes. “Bryan, those are very nice drawings! Would you like to join the school’s drawing club” Bryan only shakes his head mutely and upon taking the paper from Mrs Lim, runs towards the school gate. Mrs Lim turns to see a man glaring at Bryan. SCENE 2 It is art class and Mrs Lim tells the class they'll be doing something new. After she gives instructions, all the students start drawing. The recess bell rings and everyone submits their drawing to the front of class before exiting the classroom. Mrs Lim goes through the drawings, smiling. She reaches the final piece, pauses and frowns. SCENE 3 Mrs Lim and Bryan’s father are having a discussion at a parent-teacher meeting session. ML: “So sorry to have to get you to come down today, Mr Sim” Father: “No no it's ok, I know Bryan always gets into trouble, sorry you have to deal with him” ML: /forced smile/ “yes well, I wanted to discuss a problem with you today... there's something different about Bryan (puts down several cartoonish, colorful sketches)...compared to his other classmates (puts down a beautiful drawing drawn entirely with black crayon)” Father: “I knew it - he is underperforming at school isn't he? Are these (points to colourful drawings) his drawings? They're so badly drawn compared to his classmates' (points to the black drawing)!” ML: “Actually.. this (points to black drawing) is Bryan's” Father: “ok it's decent, so what's the problem?” ML: “The problem, Mr Sim, is that I asked the class to draw something based on how they feel, and write their name if they wanted to share it with the class. And I wonder.. why is Bryan's work (points to black drawing) completely in such a depressing colour? And he can clearly draw wonderfully, so why (pauses and flips the piece of paper) isn't he proud of himself?” /cue flashback from perspective of the parent, of him shouting and labelling Bryan "useless" and "incompetent", and tearing up his sketches at home/ /cue parent's face changing/ (Screen fades out) These words are shown: #BreakTheSilence - will you ask the right questions?

The video will show the point-of-view of a masculine man in order to show that someone people don't usually view as a typical victim of family violence can actually be one as well. It starts off in a gym where one of his buddies asks about his weekend. Then, flashback scenes start which shows how his wife attacks him at home, both physically and verbally. For example, his wife could constantly moan about him not earning enough money, and turning violent by breaking plates and cups. After this, the man decides to tell his friend the truth about his weekend (instead of the typical "it was good"). Now the video will zoom into what his friend is thinking - getting involved and breaking the silence or telling his friend that things will get better, essentially doing nothing. The audience is then asked "what will you do?"

SCENE 1 A karung guni is pushing his cart along a corridor, past a row of HDB apartments. He hears a slap and anguished crying as he walks past a particular apartment. Though he pauses for a while, he eventually shakes his head and continues walking past. SCENE 2 The same karung guni is pushing his cart along the same corridor. Upon passing the same apartment, he hears a scream before it is muffled. He pauses for longer, and turns his head towards the door of the apartment. SCENE 3 The same karung guni is pushing his cart along the same corridor. He hears sobbing again, but walks past the apartment. Then something makes him stop abruptly, and walk backwards to the apartment. He knocks on the door and a man opens it. After giving him the once-over, the man says "sorry, we don't have anything for you today", and attempts to close the door. The karung guni puts his hand out to stop the door from closing, and says "maybe not, but I have something for you". The man's demeanor changes noticeably, and he starts to threaten the karung guni "what would you have that I would be interested in? You'd better not try to be funny and leave before it's too late". The karung guni passes him a small rectangular card and says "no, you'd better use this before it's too late". The karung guni leaves and the camera pans to the card, which reads "Association of Women for Action and Research (AWARE)". The camera then shows the man looking at the card, then looking at his wife, who is still on the floor, sobbing and reeling from his slap. The man then turns to look at his wedding picture hanging on the wall, and realizes the gravity of what he is doing. His face is filled with remorse as he slumps to the ground. The screen cuts to black. These words are shown: #BreakTheSilence - how many days will it take you?

Adrian and Wendy have been married for almost 2 years. Adrian has recently lost his job for failing to meet his sales targets. He's been searching for a new job for nearly 6 months but to no avail...each failed interview comes a deeper dent on his pride and a blow on his self-efficacy. Meanwhile, Wendy is performing well at her company. She's in her boss' good books and has just gotten a promotion. Adrian starts to feel a sense of discomfiture and resentment on his own failures for not being able to be the provider of the relationship. With each passing day, his frustration grew and his abashment towards Wendy intensified. His precipitous idling made him delve into much overthinking and he became very possessive of Wendy - constantly asking for her whereabouts and kept tabs on what she's doing and who she's meeting... For months, Adrian has restricted Wendy from all her social activities and from seeing her friends after work -- citing the need to save money for them. Whenever she failed to listen to him, he will threaten her with a divorce and other emotionally and physically abusive ways. Valuing the relationship, Wendy decided to obey. One Friday night, Wendy was back late from team drinks with her colleagues. Adrian was extremely angry that she did not reply his text messages and calls. He demanded to know where she went and who she was with. Wendy, tired after a long day and exhausted of facing such confrontations, simply sighed. Adrian was outraged and started attacking Wendy, forcefully grabbing her by the neck until she choked. Wendy received some texts in her group chat from her boss, who thanked the team for his wonderful farewell party. Enraged, Adrian took Wendy's phone and replied "GOOD RIDDANCE!!!", left her group chat and threw her phone out the window. Wendy was devastated. Adrian then grabbed and pulled her across the living room, locking her out of the house that night. Word spread fast at Wendy's workplace on her domestic abuse situation. Her colleagues tried to talk to her about it but she was too embarrassed to speak up. Eventually, Wendy started wearing long sleeves to cover up the wounds that was inflicted on her limbs. Her close colleagues started to realize this and decided it was time to #BreakTheSilence by convincing her to follow them to a Family Service Centre for help.

Most of the time, people talk about domestic violence from the perspective of the victims. While it is very reasonable to do so, it is also important to see it from the side of the abuser (it might be more novel if the video is narrated by the abuser). Abusive tendencies can come not only from egotistical perceptions, but also from insecurities. They could be insecure of their inability to provide financially, of feeling comparatively unattractive, of being in a struggle of addiction, and so on. That being said, such abusers firstly need affirmation, then they need to be corrected without being antagonized (it could hurt their pride, which might lead them to be increasingly abusive and thus dangerous). A bystander might help by giving seemingly-unintentional affirmation such as, “Eh Uncle, your son always says that you are so smart, can you help my son with his mathematics?”, or “Uncle, your wife must love you a lot, she always comes the earliest to the market to choose the best vegetables to cook for you”, or “I really think you and your wife are the best couple in this neighbourhood! Both of you are good-looking, friendly, and seem to love each other a lot”. Such compliments are effective to innocently persuade the abuser to be kind to his family. Also, by giving kind words and being friendly to the abuser, hopefully it would draw the abuser closer to the society, preventing him from isolating himself and his household, thus making it easier for the neighbours to step in and take action when the situation seems critical and it is deemed necessary. It will also be more shameful for the abuser to be caught abusing his family if he has been portrayed to be a kind person.

A possible family violence scenario would be a middle aged son (Mr Tay) who gets frustrated at his elderly mother for being a burden to society due to her old age. Mr Tay's mother has dementia and was unable to find her way home on several occasions, causing Mr Tay to feel unsafe about letting his mother out of the house. Mr Tay would lock his mother at home and hit her frequently, as heard by neighbours living on the same floor as the family. The elderly mother is unable to fight back due to her frail body so she suffers in silence. Neighbours often notice that Mr Tay's house windows are often closed although Mr Tay's mother is inside the house, and are concerned for her. Mr Tay refuses to interact with any of the neighbours. One day, a neighbour peered through a small opening in the window of Mr Tay's house out of concern, and was shocked to find Mr Tay's mother covered in bruises and strapped to a chair, alone at home. The neighbour only noticed a few slices of bread and plain water on the table for the mother's consumption. The neighbour was deeply concerned and tried to shout out her name, but she did not respond. The next day, neighbours heard Mr Tay shouting at his mother for complaining that she was hungry, and sounds of physical abuse could be heard although there was no cry for help. Unable to take it anymore, the neighbour decided to knock on Mr Tay's door to check if everything was alright, only to receive a rude response from Mr Tay -- "Do not meddle with my family's business". The neighbour sensed something was terribly amiss and decided to #breakthesilence by contacting ComCare to intervene and end this cycle of violence.

A lady is on the floor sobbing uncontrollably. Amidst her tears, she managed to look up and murmured these words "How can you do this to me?" Her husband then came and put his hand on her back to offer comfort. Just as he did that, the lady pushed him away. The husband tried to hold her towards himself to hug her but the wife again pushed him away forcefully and before any one could react, she gave him a slap on his face. Hurt intensified as she shouted "You are useless!" The husband looked at his wife with a sense of helplessness mixed with a tinge of anger. A teenage daughter at the background spoke up with frustration, "Pa, Mum is crazy." It turns out that the wife and mum is the abuser with her words and with her little acts of physical outburst. All these create psychological and emotional stress for the entire family and worse of all, the abuser thinks that he or she is the victim and puts the blame on the family. The husband, being a typical Asian guy, may hesitate or feel awkward to seek help while the teenage child is too frustrated and resigned to support the dad because this may be on-going for years; the child is likely to have suffered the same verbal abuse and was slapped by the mum in her anger. Such abuse may not be severe in the eyes of the general public but it could be a widespread subtle abuse and violation of respect that break families up, whether in the literal sense or psychologically. Yet, this type of abuse is not easy to detect. The "solution" may come from a conversation with a friend who can sense that tension is on-going in the family or a neighbour who is concerned enough to ask the husband how he and his wife are. It was hard but the friend broke the silence and asked, “Do you want to carry on like this?” before handing a namecard or flyer of the Stop The Family Violence Awareness programme to the husband. Besides calling the hotline, breaking the silence could mean just noticing that help is needed and extending this help by making a resource available without forcing the victim to step forward. A nudge is better than nothing at all; people need to show that we care.

In a case of emotional and psychological abuse, a husband shames his wife for "being fat and ugly" by posting mean things on Facebook, joking with their two young children, friends, and relatives that he's feeding her too well, avoiding giving her money for food, and even making her feel guilty for eating. The wife cries alone while gorging herself on bread at the kitchen counter, after her husband finally goes to sleep and she can finally eat in peace, and one of their children sees this happening. While the family has lunch together at a hawker centre a few days later, the husband is calling his wife fat again and telling her not to eat, and the child who saw his mother crying a few nights ago simply says: "She's not fat. Stop calling her fat." The husband says nothing.

ALISON (23) a girl with a face that says innocent, hopeful, awkward, and likable. She’s on a date with a great guy PATRICK – thoughtful, charming with a slight playful edge. Alison’s really enjoying herself, but can’t quite shake off an uncomfortable feeling that she can’t understand. Soon, the date is over and Patrick sends to her doorstep. Patrick kisses Alison and she reciprocates with a soft sigh. We see Patrick hands coming to rest on Alison’s waist. But when he touches her, Alison pulls away suddenly. Patrick: “What’s wrong?” Alison shakes her head. She didn’t know what was wrong. Patrick kisses her again, but Alison recoils again when his hands touch her shoulders. Patrick: “I’m sorry. If you’re not ready…” Alison: “No, no, it’s not you. Don’t be sorry.” Alison musters enough strength to open her door, close it behind her and slump to the floor. Alison can’t understand why she’s reacting this way. She really likes this guy! Alison crashes on her couch and starts to cry really hard before falling asleep. In her dreams, she relives her last moments of Patrick moving in to kiss her. But everything began slowing and Patrick’s face morphs into that of an older man. Alison wakes and shows signs of PTSD as her contact with Patrick has stirred up repressed memories of being molested by her uncle as a little girl. With her family and Patrick’s support, Alison is able to seek help to overcome her childhood trauma. The story ends roughly a year later with Patrick proposing to Alison. Her acceptance of the proposal is symbolic of her successfully breaking the years of silence over her family’s violence. Ending tagline: Don’t suffer in silence. Seek help for family violence and break the silence together.

Ethan, 13, came home with a bruised eye and a torn uniform. His parents were shocked and tearfully asked him what happened. Ethan explained that's a bully in his class who often harasses other students. The bully's name is Augustine -- big, burly and skin covered with scars and bruises -- presumbly from the fights he's been in. The weak often found themselves succumbing to Augustine's physical/verbal abuse. That day, Ethan's good friend had his belongings taken by Augustine who threatened to out the window. Ethan stepped in but was swiftly attacked by Augustine who flung textbooks and punches at him. Ethan's father is upset and immediately called the school Principal. The next day during morning assembly, Augustine got caned in front of the school. Principal explained that bullying is wrong and urged everyone who's witnessed bullying to speak out. Augustine seemed to struggle to put on a brave front but Ethan can't help but feel there is a certain sadness within Augustine. After assembly, Ethan noticed that Augustine is missing from class for the rest of the day. Days passed and Augustine still had not turned up for school. Their form-teacher explained that Augustine's father said that Augustine is ill and will not come to school for weeks. That night, Ethan received a call from Augustine, who expressed his heartfelt apologies. Ethan seemed taken aback at first but eventually forgave Augustine; asking how he's feeling. Augustine said he's still ill and is worried for the final-year examinations which is happening in a fortnight. The next day, Ethan realized that Augustine's textbooks were under his desk and decided to bring them to Augustine's house for his revision. Augustine answered the door and was surprised to see Ethan, quickly trying to conceal his face but he's too slow. There Augustine stood - his face swollen with bruises and cane marks, his front-tooth missing and his right-arm in a cast. It was then that Ethan learnt of Augustine's abusive father. Whenever he's in a bad mood, Augustine would be beaten or whipped -- which explains Augustine's perpetual wounds. When the Principal notified him about Augustine's actions, he was so enraged that he clobbered Augustine. Augustine broke down; explaining he used bullying as a way to toughen himself but understood now that it is wrong. Ethan told his parents and they collectively decided to #BreakTheSilence by seeking help at a Family Service Centre for Augustine.

1)Develop self help resources online for people struggling with violence behaviours e.g.comics, video stories of those who managed & overcome violence behaviours, mahjong games with quizes & tips to gain points, webinars etc 2) Outreach to pubs, casinos, petrol stations, coffeeshops with awareness messages e.g. scratch and win prizes (e.g. beverage cooler with anger management messaging & pointing to self help websites/FVSC) 3) develop free apps on violence management similar to health tracker apps 4) 'uber' counseling services app, matching professionals to users who need help. Professionals can accept users booking via video call sessions. This reduces stigma of going to FSC or counselling centres.

Video starts off with a boy, closing his house gates quietly. It is about 10/11pm. Boy goes to the mama shop under his HDB flat. The boy places the bar of chocolate on the counter of the cashier. No words are exchanged between the two. When boy hands the aunty some coins to pay for his chocolate, they make eye contact and the aunty sees the sorrowful eyes of the boy. Boy leaves the mama shop and enters the elevator. Boy enters and presses the floor number. Lift closes. Boy approaches his flat. Looking through the house grills, he sees the shadows of his parents shouting at each other. This includes seeing one of them with their hand in the air about to hit the other. Back at the mama shop, a resident comes. As he places his purchases on the counter, Mama shop aunty asks the resident about the boy. She tells the resident that ah boy comes here to buy chocolate all the time. He always sees him after school. She also tells him how ah boy has been coming around the shop, late at night and unusual from his chirpy self. The resident then tells her that his parents have been fighting a lot with a lot of screaming and shouting. He even hears things being thrown. “Has no one called the police?” she asks. Resident shrugs, “It’s better to mind your own business ah Aunty, better not to get involved” as he hands over $10 to pay for his items. Boy sits outside his house to eat his chocolate. He is looking very sad. Shouting and screaming continues. While eating, he is greeted by the crash of a shattered photo frame that has been flung across the house to the door step. Photo frame consists of a family portrait. One night, the mama shop aunty decides to go up the block to take a look at the situation, and to see the situation for herself. As she steps out of the lift, she sees the boy sitting outside with his head in his hands. Distant shouting and screaming can be heard from the house. Aunty then mumbles to herself "Wah, mind your own business? Cannot la..." She then proceeds to take out her mobile phone and starts dialing. "Hello, police? I think there’s a case of family violence at my block."

Will you make a new friend? A group of millennials (17 – 22) are playing a first person shooter video game, audiences can hear shooting and loud beating noises from the video game itself. Scene cuts to Boy A losing and being frustrated, he throws the controller to the sofa while audio track cuts to a triumphant music with the other boys making fun of him. Suddenly, the loud sounds similar to the video game, continues. It is revealed to be coming from above. The boys look at one another and glances up. At the void deck the next day, the boys are hanging out and finds out that the neighbour, a girl of a similar same age, is being violently treated by her father. Cycle repeats, and one day at the void deck, Boy A awkwardly approaches the girl. He stumbles and asks if she’ll like to play video games with them, he initially whips out a few boyish video games but finally whips up a Disney/kids game, which draws a smile on Girl’s face. "You want to join us to play video games? We can play... Call of Duty... oh no, or we can play Guitar Hero? Or okay I know what we can play… Disney Infinite?" Girl says yes, has a great time and at the end of the night, the boy offers to walk her up. Gate opens with screaming father, not noticing Boy A. When father notices boy A, the boy greets uncle and apologises "Sorry uncle we had to fight the boss of the last level, he was very strong and tough and was beating all of us up. It was v.scary." He does it animatedly, with him swing his arms around as though fighting the boss in a ridiculous and exaggerated manner and girl’s father softens his tone. The key message for this video is not just to tell millennials to reach out, but that they can also provide support in terms of befriending, allowing the victims a way of support and slowly helping them soften the mood at home and breaking the silence.

One possible scenario would be the abuse inflicted on a daughter by a single mother. This single mother was physically abused by her husband and in-laws and they divorced when the daughter was eight years old. The husband remarried and did not want the daughter. The single mother then had to raise the child alone as she was isolated from her maternal family. The single mother has hate pent up for her husband and the presence of her daughter reminds her of the abuse she faced at the hands of her husband’s family. This, along with being overwhelmed by the pressure of being the sole breadwinner and also the responsibilities of taking care of the child, leads her to vent her emotions on her child. In order to fend for the family, she would leave her child alone in the rented flat and leave to work, only returning home late at night. The child thus usually fends for herself. Any form of misbehavior in the home would be dealt with harshly, such as using a belt or inflicting emotional abuse such as “bastard child” or “you are just like your father”. However, she knows how to cover up for herself and pretends to be very normal with the neighbours, school teachers, colleagues etc. The mother later on stays with her boyfriend who sexually abuses the child, but the child has no one to turn to and is too afraid to speak up. As the form-teacher of the girl, I realize that her performance in schoolwork is poor and her clothes are often dirty and smells. She is also unusually shy and has low self-esteem. I decide to talk to the child and try to gain the child’s trust. After the child confides in me, I decide to report this to the school authorities and also accompany her to Family Service Centre to seek advice from the social workers at Project START. Domestic violence by the parents could be masked in the excuse of physical discipline on the child- such as slapping, caning, or in other forms such as forcing the child to kneel down etc, with the intention to humiliate the child. Emotional and mental forms of abuse is also an option to such parents, as there would be no physical marks of the abuse left on the victim. One other difficult-to-detect form would be physical or emotional neglect.

The single mother has hate pent up for her husband and the presence of her daughter reminds her of the abuse she faced at the hands of her husband’s family. This, along with being overwhelmed by the pressure of being the sole breadwinner and also the responsibilities of taking care of the child, leads her to vent her emotions on her child. In order to fend for the family, she would leave her child alone in the rented flat and leave to work, only returning home late at night. The child thus usually fends for herself. Any form of misbehavior in the home would be dealt with harshly, such as using a belt or inflicting emotional abuse such as “bastard child” or “you are just like your father”. However, she knows how to cover up for herself and pretends to be very normal with the neighbours, school teachers, colleagues etc. The mother later on stays with her boyfriend who sexually abuses the child, but the child has no one to turn to and is too afraid to speak up. As the form-teacher of the girl, I realize that her performance in schoolwork is poor and her clothes are often dirty and smells. She is also unusually shy and has low self-esteem. I decide to talk to the child and try to gain the child’s trust. After the child confides in me, I decide to report this to the school authorities and also accompany her to Family Service Centre to seek advice from the social workers at Project START. Domestic violence by the parents could be masked in the excuse of physical discipline on the child- such as slapping, caning, or in other forms such as forcing the child to kneel down etc, with the intention to humiliate the child. Emotional and mental forms of abuse is also an option to such parents, as there would be no physical marks of the abuse left on the victim. One other difficult-to-detect form would be physical or emotional neglect.

One possible scenario would be the abuse inflicted on a daughter by a single mother. This single mother was physically abused by her husband and in-laws and they divorced when the daughter was eight years old. The husband remarried and did not want the daughter. The single mother then had to raise the child alone as she was isolated from her maternal family. The single mother has hate pent up for her husband and the presence of her daughter reminds her of the abuse she faced at the hands of her husband’s family. This, along with being overwhelmed by the pressure of being the sole breadwinner and also the responsibilities of taking care of the child, leads her to vent her emotions on her child. In order to fend for the family, she would leave her child alone in the rented flat and leave to work, only returning home late at night. The child thus usually fends for herself. Any form of misbehavior in the home would be dealt with harshly, such as using a belt or inflicting emotional abuse such as “bastard child” or “you are just like your father”. However, she knows how to cover up for herself and pretends to be very normal with the neighbours, school teachers, colleagues etc. No one knows she later on stayed with her then boyfriend, who later raped and killed her child when she was on an overseas trip with her friends. I think one effective way might be for authorities to raise awareness through campaigns and also media such as TV shows and movies, and another option would be for victims to speak up. It is important to erase the stigma of domestic abuse so that victims would dare to speak out. On an individual level, I feel powerless to help because the abused would confide in others. However, there are several things I could do. If I hear my neighbours yelling out in pain or fear, I would definitely approach the family and check if my neighbor is being abused and try to provide support. If anyone confides in me, I would definitely help him or her by accompanying him or her to Family Service Centre or contact a lawyer, or apply for a Personal Protection Order. I would also let them stay at my house to shelter them temporarily and provide them with emotional support.

A day at the Kindergarten: "There I met an old man who wouldn't say his prayers, So I took him by his left leg and threw him down the stairs" "Like how aunty throw grandma!" Sim Yin replied in absolute abruption as the 19 other heads in the class turned towards her. Mrs.Pang's occasional rhyme singing session had rarely been interrupted with something as startling as this. Despite the meager jitters which lingered through Mrs.Pang's mind throughout the session she was still forced to keep it to herself till the end of the class. At the Playground: The kids were out in the makeshift playground. See-saws rocked, swings flung and so did Grandma at home!. Mrs.Pang meekly called to Sim Yin. She didn't intend to interrogate Yin, however she did sense something unusual in Sim's reply during the rhyme’s session. “Hey Sim, how's your Grandma?. Is she doing well?” asked Mrs.Pang. Sim's face drooped down in dismay. Mrs.Pang wanted to meet Sim Yin's parents with regard to this, however she was aware that her mom was a working professional. Sim Yin's domestic helper pushes her Grandma to the kindergarten in an effort to fetch Sim Yin back home everyday. Strangely, on this given day the domestic helper didn't turn up as time had suggested. Mrs.Pang had to hold wait till 2pm expecting Sim Yin’s custodian(Her domestic helper). It was 2pm in the noon and Mrs.Pang had to retire for the day. To give it a final go Mrs.Pang, walks a few steps in unbacked hope expecting the domestic helper to arrive, she is up for a major bout of shock. Sim Yin's domestic helper walks back and forth with her earphones plugged in, just when the old grandma lets out sudden wails, clearly calling out for help. The helper then comes and kicks forcefully onto the wheelchair and slaps grandma on the face with a thud. This appalls Mrs.Pang. The domestic helper then screams in a ghastly manner! All that Mrs.Pang could do was to comfort Sim Yin. Upon sighting Mrs.Pang staring at her in shock the domestic helper impersonates to be a well-mannered being. Mrs.Pang unwillingly is forced to let go of Sim Yin. How could she trust Sim Yin with someone as harsh as the domestic helper? Mrs.Pang quickly rushes into the staff office and contacts comcare at an immediate notice with the Principal's permission.

Instead of the portayal of female/children being the victim of family violence, it will be interesting to explore the male as being the victim of family violence. The male of the family playing the role of the home maker ( stay home dad) will be the victim of the abuse by the wife who works. The abuse will be subsequently noticed by the male’s acquaintance, Jane at the market, who was a home maker or known as Auntie. This carried on for a few days where she noticed the male often spotting new injuries. Eventually, she went up to the male to ask him about it. At first, he brush her questions off saying it was nothing. Jane went home, feeling that something was amiss. This was when she decided to pay the male a visit at his home. The male , told her about the family violence issues that he was facing and she advised him to speak to his wife first before going to the authority. It was after a few rounds of persuasion that the male decided to speak up against family violence.

Low Ser En
Loud fighting noises wake up a couple, Ming and Jane, in a HDB flat. They hear a woman screaming. Things being thrown around. A child crying. Ming and Jane discuss whether they should intervene as they hear it very often, and their neighbour, a burly man, Hock, might beat them up if they intervene. The next day, the couple pass by Hock at the void deck of the HDB block, panicking. Initially they gave him a “look” of fear, as they are afraid his violent streak will turn to them. Hock looks really worried and that’s when Jane realises scratches on his arm, and a huge patch of blue-black on his face. Jane and Ming then realise that it’s Hock who has been abused by his wife the whole time. They approach Hock, and ask him how they can help him. He says that his wife has stolen his car keys and threatens to take away their child, only because she saw him talking to a female colleague at work. It’s not the first time she went on this crazy streak. Jane and Ming then tell him that he needs to take photos of his injuries and report his wife to the police or send her to a counsellor. He is reluctant, as no one would believe he’s a victim. Jane tells him, if he wants to protect his child, that’s the best thing he can do. Hock agrees. I would be interested to explore spousal abuse against men for this 1-min video. Men are often reluctant to report abuse by women because there is a culture of masculine expectations, especially in Asia, and they might feel embarrassed or not treated seriously by the police. However, I have encountered male relatives who have been abused not only physically but emotionally and verbally as well. I think this is an angle on domestic abuse that needs to be told, because we often associate perpetrators of domestic violence with men, and not women. We need to encourage men to be able to stand up to this, by not retaliating the abuse, but by seeking help for their partners and in turn protect their children.

LIM LIANG CHUN
A primary school student goes to a hardware shop after school to buy some screws. The boy walks by the lady sitting at the counter, who seems fixated on her mobile that’s placed on her desk at chest level. She looks up and sees him come in. She has an awkward smile on her face. He looks at her suspiciously, and then looks around the shop. The shop is rather gloomy, with some shelves left unstocked. “Screws?” he asks. She gets up, pulls down on her right sleeve, and says, “This way.” He walks behind her, noticing her rather timid gait. All the while, her eyes are set on the cement floor. She occasionally turns her head around slightly to check on him. They reach the deep corners of the shop. The screws are kept in lidless plastic containers on the bottommost row of the metal racks. She crouches down but he remains standing. She combs through the screws of various lengths. “How long?” she asks. He tightens his lips. “I don’t know.” He puts down his bag, and takes out a toy pistol. Lacking a screw out of three, the two halves of the toy are loosely connected. There are cracks and missing bits of plastic, as though it’s been smacked on the ground but pieced back together futilely. “I want to fix my gun,” he murmurs. She gets up again, grabs a short plastic stool nearby, and says, “Have a seat while I find you the right screw.” He hesitates for a second, walks towards her, stands before the stool, presses his hands on it before lowering his buttocks. He has a subtly bitter look on his face. By the time he’s seated, she’s already rolled up her right sleeve and reveals the pinch marks on her arm. “Do you have these on your body, too?” she asks softly while looking at her right arm. Then, she walks towards him, kneels down so that their eyes meet, and places her right hand on his left hand. And the mobile on her desk rings. Both of them turn their attention towards it. (End)

The whole clip would be played to the song Daughters by John Mayer. As I’m locking up my gate and preparing to leave home, I see my neighbour leaving her home as well. The sun shines on her face and her smile radiates a warmth that demands my attention and I can’t help but smile back at her as well. She turns to face me and we greet one another. We then head off in the same direction together. The scene changes to quick flashes, each scene shot with a blue-tint: she is being hit by an older male figure in the house, angry conversations between them and there’s a lot of furniture being thrown around; I do come up in the shots, rushing in from my place to intervene and stopping the man from hitting, or raining blows verbally on her. In the last scene, there are zoom in shots of her pulling down her blouse to hide her scars and bruises around her arms and abdomen, she powders her face skillfully her puffy eyes that were soaked from the tears she cried last night. She dabs the last few tears off her eyes gently and prepares to leave the house from the front—and that’s when she meets me in the same scene played out in the front. The camera pans to the a brouchre of AWARE and the two walking off.

I have a good friend named MingJie. He is always wearing a jacket despite the terrible warm weather. One day by chance , in the toilet i saw him removing his jacket where he was fully covered with bruises, using ice packets to reduce swolleness on his arms. At that moment i was curious as to why he had that many bruises so without thinking i approached him and asked "What happened? Are you okay?" Seeing that i appeared, he immediately wore his jacket and rushed out of the toilet. At that time i didnt actually realise that he was actually suffering from domestic violence. It was then that afternoon after school where i headed towards his house about to persuade him to go to the playground and play with me. When i reached the corridor of his house, i heard yellings of his mother and his cries" Ah ma! Im sorry! 不要打我!". At that moment, neighbours of theirs passed by and i overheard them discussing "Aiyo, so noisy. Everyday also want to beat the child." The other lady spoke "I heard that she's a single mother, lets not be busybodies and get involved in it." At that moment i realised what exactly has been going on, i clenched my firsts wanting to help him but i was only a primary school kid what could i do? The next day, things then escalated quickly in class when a few female classmates out of playfulness tried to get him take off his jacket and out of overprotectiveness of himself he used strength and pushed the girls away causing them to fall onto the ground and crashed into another table respectively and was called to the principle office. I knew the reason behind his actions but i didnt know what to do. Feeling conflicted, i opened up to my mother and said "Mummy... you know my good friend MingJie..." and told her about his situation. After hearing about his situation my mother assured me"Leave it to me, i will help." During the next day at the meet the parents session my mother then approached Mrs Tan who is also Ming Jie's mother while i followed her behind and started the conversation "Nice to meet you Mrs Tan, I am Mrs Lim, your son has been a wonderful friend to my Xavier".Mrs Tan then turned her attention onto me and i nodded my head.

Koon, Huat, Geokhui and Siewhua are good, old friends living out their golden years together. The four of them will spend time together everyday in their neighbourhood. Be it enjoying a game of chinese chess at the seniors' corner, taking part in taichi or strolling in the nearby park; they greatly enjoy each others' companionship and find solace in one another. They are simply inseparable. One day, Siewhua came to them looking troubled. The trio tried to cheer her up and find out what's wrong but Siewhua simply replied that she simply missed her only son who had passed away almost a year ago. Over the days, Siewhua appeared to be even more depressed and is no longer her chirpy self. Koon realized that there were multiple bruises on Siewhua's arms, to which she explained that she hit herself while cleaning and it was nothing they had to worry about. In time, Siewhua suddenly stopped appearing. At first, they thought it could be health reasons or that she needed rest. But as days turned to weeks, they missed Siewhua greatly and decided to pay her a visit. When they went up to Siewhua's house, they heard shouting. Objects were flung around and sound of breaking glass can be heard! They rattled the door and demanded it be opened. Siewhua's daughter-in-law answered the door and furiously told them to leave and mind their own business. They hollered for Siewhua several times to which a faint cry finally came from the bedroom urging them to go. They spoke to Siewhua's neighbour and learnt that Siewhua hasn't been allowed to leave the house at all for over a month. Locked up, Siewhua is unable to open the door, windows or talk to anyone at all. Berating screams, cries of anguish and sounds of thrown objects is common whenever the daughter-in-law comes around. The trio angrily asked the neighbour why didn't he do anything about it to which he appeared to be ashamed. They immediately went to the nearby PoliceStation to make a report. Accompanied by the Police, they returned to Siewhua's home and broke down the locked door. The place is seen to be in a ghastly mess and Siewhua is crying on the bed covered in cuts and wounds. While Siewhua is finally reunited with her friends in strong embrace, the Police reassured her that they'll help make things right.

Concept: This concept revolves around the idea that family violence is a vicious cycle and one’s actions could cause long term damage to both an individual, especially child, and a family. The concept also explores the idea that in the past when violence was used against a child, it was more commonly seen as disciplining a child. AH MA - ANDY’S MOTHER ANDY - MAIN CHARACTER BOY - ANDY’s SON Scene 1 AH MA arrives home from the market, carrying big bags of grocery. ANDY asks if she had bought the household supplies that he asked her to. Scene flashes back to 30 years ago when ANDY was beaten by AH MA because he forgot to run errands for her. Scene 2 ANDY started to scold and beat her for forgetting to buy the supplies for the third time. Meanwhile BOY (5 years old) observed the whole incident from his room.

A 22-year-old girl seems cheery (like any typical university student aiming to excel in many aspects of life) because whenever she is out till late she escapes from the hell that is home. She hadn't forgotten how when she was about four years old, she was showering and got chased out of the bathroom by her mother who then locked her out her HDB flat, naked. She always remembers peering into the house holding onto the grills of the gate and wondering why she is locked out. Throughout her life, she was always hit whenever her mother felt angry at her. Be it whacking with her slippers, pouring oil on her bed to wake her up, pinching her, slapping her always more than once (till she decided to take things in her own hands and slap her own face for her mother because she couldn't take it anymore), throwing things at her, splashing water at her, tearing her letters up and throwing the pieces at her, enduring words like how her mother regretted giving birth to her and how she's a bastard. When her mother lashes out at her which is almost every other day, she has to listen to her scolding for at least an hour. Her mother can do whatever she wants because she's "her daughter". That includes threatening to ruin her future by doing whatever it takes like calling her friends to stop being friends with her and barring her from doing her schoolwork. Her father also endures the same fate. If he steps in to help, he gets caned along with her. His two pagers have been dunked into hot milo. They have terrapins in the house and one time, the mother was so agitated, she grabbed the pet and put it close to the father's neck. The terrified terrapin bit her father. He was later sent to hospital because he developed a high fever after. She is still at a loss as to what to do because she loves her mother. She tries to get out of the house whenever she can to avoid all the abuse. She yearns for the love of a mother who is not plagued with anxiety, depression, panic attacks and bipolar disorder. Her schoolmates who found out what had always been happening behind closed doors decided to refer her to the school counsellor and seek help through that avenue.

You usually see an elderly at coffee shop when you have dinner there with your family. over time you realise she looks visibly more frail and weak. Finding an opportunity, you strike a conversation with her, building relationship. Then one day you realise she starts coming to the coffee shop less until she does not appear altogether. One day, you spot her out with a group of people you immediately assume as her family. You go up to her and say hello, and she weakly nods. You try to speak to the family but they speak to you in a very dismissive manner. You notice that she looks forlorn. One day, you decide to look for her after not seeing her in awhile. With a vague memory of her mentioning where she lives, you go look for her. Upon reaching her HDB unit, you ring the doorbell a few times. Eventually, the door opens and she peeks out. On seeing you she starts sobbing. She keeps insisting that you do not stay, but after a while, she hesitantly opens the door. You are startled by the mess that you see. You realise that she is suffering from neglect.

Concept: This concept revolves around the idea that family violence is a vicious cycle and one’s actions could cause long term damage to both an individual, especially child, and a family. The concept also explores the idea that in the past when violence was used against a child, it was more commonly seen as disciplining a child. Scene 1 ANDY’s MOTHER arrives home from the market, carrying big bags of grocery. ANDY asks if she had bought the household supplies that he asked her to. Scene flashes back to 30 years ago when ANDY came home and ANDY’s MOTHER asks him if he bought the supplies she needed. Scene 2 ANDY’s MOTHER admitted that she forgot for the third time. ANDY got angry and started to scold and beat her. Scene flashes back to reveal how ANDY’s MOTHER abused ANDY back when he was a child. Scene 3 With a loud whack, ANDY suddenly stopped. ANDY’s SON (5 years old) tried to stop ANDY from scolding his grandmother by hitting ANDY with this toy sword. ANDY is stunned by his actions and turned to at him, ANDY’s SON looks at ANDY innocently. - BREAK THE SILENCE -

“Fifty thousand?” Wei uttered. “I do not have so much! Beng, I have helped you countless times but the amount you owed the loan sharks kept increasing! When will you ever learn your lesson? ” Beep… the line was dead. Wei stared at his phone unbelievably. How did it come to this stage? As Wei made his way home after work, he could not help but reminisced on the good times his brother and him enjoyed before school results became the decisive factor for the amount of parental love they received. Wei topped the cohort yearly while Beng wanted nothing to do with books. Beng thus became the verbal and physical target of their parents’ contempt. Wei felt bad for his brother and always tried to speak up for him. However, that did nothing to efface the deep animosity his brother felt towards him for being the favourite son. Beng had barely passed his O’ Levels before he stepped straight into the society. Wei topped his graduate school and went on to become one of the rising stars in the biomedical field. Clash! The sound of a shattering vase pulled Wei out of his reverie. He dashed towards the door and opened it. Beng was holding a remnant of the shattered vase to his mother’s throat. “What are you doing?” bellowed Wei. “Oh, the favourite son is back! Earning so much and yet so stingy!” Beng hissed. “Let go of Mum! You’ve taken all her money! She has no more!” Fury coursed through Wei’s blood as he charged towards Beng. Beng caught Wei’s fist in mid-air. A flurry of violent blows and loud, verbal assault ensued. Mum tried to stop them but to no avail. “Stop it at once!” a thunderous voice echoed through the house. The trio was greeted by a posse of policemen. Relief washed over Mum. Behind the policemen stood a silent figure. Mum recognised her at once – her neighbour of ten years, Ling. Beng and Wei were brought back to the police station for further investigation. Worn out, Mum sat down in her living room, not daring to imagine how the whole situation would have turned out if not for the intervention of Ling. Ling sat down beside her and offered her a comforting cup of tea. “Thank you,” Mum uttered gratefully. “What are neighbours for?” Ling smiled warmly and gave Mum a hug.

One day, I noticed several cuts and scars along the length of a rather quiet and reserved classmate’s forearm. She caught me looking and quickly swung her arm away. Concerned and curious, I decided to get to know her more with the intention of eventually asking her about what looks like her self-harm habits. Despite being dismissive initially, she began to ease up around me more with each passing day. After a few weeks, I decided that it was time to gently confront her about her cuts. With a quiet sigh, she lowered her gaze to the ground and shared of the pent up frustrations she had towards her family. With her father’s vicious habit of gambling and drinking, their family had inevitably been at the brunt of his violent tendencies. I accompanied her to talk to our teacher after class about this.

The story focuses on a little girl in Primary 3 called Emily. A montage is shown of Emily's daily life in school -- while the peers of her age are joyful and talkative, her appearance evokes a perpetual sense of melancholy and loneliness. Emily is quiet at school, and gloomily spends her recess alone while her classmates are happily playing together. Emily's form teacher, Ms. Tan, gradually seems to become aware of her social isolation and tries to talk to her but Emily remains quiet and instead breaks down into tears. Ms. Tan tried several times to contact Emily's parents but no one seemed to pick up the phone. Ms. Tan seems perplexed and is worried for Emily, thinking that she has trouble making friends. Ms. Tan made her class start to write and submit weekly topical journals in a jotter book. Students will have to write a page-long story and draw on the other. This way, her students can improve on their creative writing skills while Ms. Tan gets to know each of her students better. A montage is then shown of the first few pages being topics like "My Favourite Food", "My Favourite Hobby" etc. One day, Ms. Tan is marking through her students' journals on the topic "My Family". The first few books were a nice read -- drawings of happy, loving family and her students' description of how much they love their parents. These put a warm smile on Ms. Tan's face. When Ms. Tan opened Emily's jotter book, she started to tear up... We are then shown Emily's sad drawing of her father and mother. Emily's father is drawn to be holding a bottle with a angry face while her mother is drawn to be crying on the floor, with Emily herself seemingly drawn to be hiding behind her mother. We then start to hear a sad voiceover and flashback sequences of Emily's journal entry -- on how "angry papa" would always come home late and beat "mama" and her -- finally unveiling that Emily's father is an abusive alcoholic. Ms. Tan then start to #BreakTheSilence and get in touch with the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) for assistance on Child and Spousal Abuse. One night, the professionals and Ms. Tan made a visit to Emily's house and stopped Emily's father from beating his family who were crying and in pain.

Start off with a first-person perspective of the girl who is being emotionally abused by her mother at home. The first scene can be at the dining table as she’s eating with her family and her mother starts off with: “Why are you getting so lazy nowadays? I told you to do the laundry last night but you went to bed.” Girl says: “I had school in the morning and work afterwards…I’m tired.” Mom: “You’re becoming worse. I had enough of you. Go and help kor (elder brother) with his laundry too.” Even in today’s day and age, most Singapore Chinese families still uphold traditional standards where males do not have to do any house chores at home and females are expected to do them. In this story, the mother is always mad at the girl, always finding faults with her and never appreciates whatever she does for the family. After the first-person perspective scene, background music and her voice-over can start in the next scene where it will be third-person. The girl will be talking about how she feels in her daily life and what she feels towards her mother. She will go through her daily life such as, going to school, meeting friends, and going to work. She gets emotionally blackmailed by her mother every day, even through text. It could be as simple as her mom texting her to buy food simply because her mom is too lazy to buy dinner back. She, however, was out and had no money to buy food back so she respectfully declined. Her mother would send her texts like “Whatever.” Or “Do whatever you want.” Her family couldn’t support her financially because parents were separated. Despite being a full-time student, she had to work and contribute to the family otherwise she would be deemed as “lazy” and “unfilial”. Her bestfriend is her emotional pillar when things get tough at home. Maybe we could end the scene with her breaking down and wanting to kill herself, despite acting tough in school, but her friend found her. She looks up with tears and mouthed: “help me.” And her friend rushes to hug her. Emotional abuse may seem like is nothing to outsiders but it is an abuse that can drive people to committing a suicide. Emotional stress has not been talked about in campaigns but it is also a form of family violence. Please help these people.

Uncle Chee Meng, a 74-year-old senile man who is wheelchair-bound, relies on his hot-tempered and unemployed son, Darren, 40, to take care of him as he is his only family member left. Darren feels resentful as he believes that caring for his senile father is burdensome, and that the elderly man is the only thing standing between him and a new job. As such, he often takes out his anger on Uncle Chee Meng. Darren locks Uncle Chee Meng in the house, all alone in the dark, whenever Darren wants to go to the coffee shop to have a beer. Darren also straps Uncle Chee Meng to his wheelchair so that he does not move around and mess the house up. Darren uses ropes to tie Uncle Chee Meng’s arms and ankles tightly to the wheelchair. Due to his fear and confusion from being trapped in the dark house by himself, Uncle Chee Meng often soils himself, and Darren becomes incensed whenever that happens because he is the one who has to clean Uncle Chee Meng. Darren, a smoker, frequently uses his cigarette butts to burn Uncle Chee Meng’s arm whenever he soils himself, and Uncle Chee Meng wails loudly whenever that happens. 70-year-old Aunty Siew Li, a long-time neighbour of Uncle Chee Meng, often sees the old man cooped alone in the living room in the dark, and can also smell the stench of his soiled pants, whenever she walks back to her flat with her granddaughter after she fetches the girl from primary school. She can see his plight because Uncle Chee Meng’s flat is along a common corridor, and Darren always leaves the windows open. Aunty Siew Li is also aware of Darren’s hot temper and his mistreatment of Uncle Chee Meng because she has heard shouting and wailing before. She is afraid to intervene because Darren always glares at her whenever he catches her peering through his windows, and she is scared that he will harm her granddaughter. Her granddaughter tells her that her teacher has taught her class that people should stand up to bullies, even if they feel scared. Aunty Siew Li finally musters up the courage after she hears that, and she realises that she would want someone to be brave enough to rescue her should she be the one in that situation. Hence, she finally calls the police.

I heard the sound of faded footsteps grow louder from her side. I was video-calling my grandmother, who has been living alone for the past two weeks. She was sick, and I was discussing with her when Mother and I should bring her to the doctor since Father has not been at home for a while, always out gambling. In the screen, Grandma looked out the window into the corridor behind her, and my eyes followed to see my father covered in bruises in tattered shorts and an old t-shirt, looking upset and exhausted. I immediately recognised the scene I used to often face before my parents separated and Mum and I moved out. He must have lost a bet. "Ah Wei!" she happily greeted him, but he did not bother to acknowledge her. Grandma walked out of my sight to unlock the gate for him. I heard her struggling with the lock, and an impatient loud noise of the gate harshly being hit, which I envisioned was caused by my father. My mother had sat down next to me, and together we listened to the door shutting, my father calling out for a beer, followed after a while of him pestering Grandma to hurry up by a thump of glass against the table. "Water is better for you, you have had a lot of alcohol lately," the frail voice of my grandmother's voice advised. "I said, a beer!" bellowed my father. I winced at how loud he was and lowered the volume on my computer. A deafening shatter of glass against the floor was heard, then the cries of my grandmother apologising and begging for him to stop, along with the gruesome noises of punches being thrown and slaps. Tears started streaming down my face and my mother's hand gripped tighter around mine as she ended the call. We rushed over to Grandma's house where she told me to stay aside as she stopped the fight.

The first month of secondary school was as uneventful as I had expected. Not much differed from primary school life. That was not until I met a classmate named Jarren. At first glance, I thought he was an extremely hostile person. He appeared to have a scar across his leg as if it was slashed carelessly with a knife. He also constantly wore a knee guard and walked with a limp; seemingly to have suffered an injury. Much to my surprise, he was actually quite friendly. When I tried to approach him to introduce myself, he reciprocated in a rough yet welcoming tone. From that day onwards, we started to talk more often, forming a close friendship with each other; always being the default picks during group work. Last week, Jarren and I along with two other classmates had to finalise our group’s project work. We met at the public library to gather input from all members. Surprisingly, Jarren was absent. We could not complete the work, so we had no other option then to try and call Jarren. After several calls, Jarren finally picked up the phone. However, when we tried asking Jarren where he was, he maintained silence, but in the background, we could clearly hear a shrill cry echo through the corridors of Jarren’s house. The camera was then turned on to reveal both Jarren and his mother being scolded and repeatedly struck down by a man wielding a shattered wine bottle. Consequentially dropping the phone to the ground. My members could not bear the horrific sight, feeling the need to look away. At the end, I could hear a soft whisper of an address,” Gaia Street 24 Block 205 Unit 07-30”. With that the call ended. Shocked and reeling from the traumatic sight, I recalled the events that I witnessed, shortly afterwards describing it vividly to the police with the. The scene was contained shortly after the arrival of the police, bringing the drunk man to the police station for interrogation. The next day, I spotted Jarren in the canteen, alone. Taking my chances I gave him a flyer I have found online about counselling to stop alcohol addiction. Skimming through it, his sorrowful expression immediately drained away, replace with joy and hope that he can help his father. He thanked me with the warmth of his embrace.

Don’t drink and hit This will be about a shopkeeper who sees one of his regular customers (who always buys beer from him) acting drunk outside his shop and mistreating his wife. All his other customers tell him to stop selling the beer, but he will say, I cannot do that, since he is my customer. But he looks very troubled. One day, when the regular comes up (sober for once), and buys a packet of milk (?) instead of beer, the shopkeeper takes the opportunity to invite him to go play badminton with him and his friends every evening (way to distract him rather than drink beer all the time). Then through the games, they become friends and one day, after a game (and seeing that the customer just got off the phone with his wife in a very loving way), the shopkeeper sits next to the customer and say “I noticed that sometimes when you drink too much beer, you don’t talk so well to your lao bu. You ever think of maybe cutting down a little?”

“Don’t hit Por Por please” Scenes showing a middle aged housewife who has to care for her kids and also her elderly mother/mother-in-law who is wheelchair bound. She is obviously trying her best but she occasionally snaps at the children and is rough in handling the elderly. As the clip continues, the handling becomes even rougher to borderline abuse eg putting her on her bed roughly after helping her from the wheelchair, and taking her bowl of rice away and throwing it away when the elderly takes too long to eat. The housewife’ children are present throughout, and the little girl looks scared whenever she watches her mother ill-treating the elderly. One day, the little girl is playing with her dolls and her aunt sees her treating the dolls roughly and scolding them. The aunt reprimands her, and looks shocked when the girl says “that is how mummy looks after Por Por.” The aunt tells her to treat her dolls gently because they can’t look after themselves and need our help. The next time the mother treats Grandma roughly, the little girl runs up to her and says “mummy, mummy, don’t hit Por Por please. She can’t look after herself so we need to help her”. The housewife looks shocked and then, slightly ashamed.

Ah Beng saves the Day A male youth (up to 25 years old) is seen progressively using verbal and “almost hits” on his same-aged girlfriend/partner. Some of the incidents happen while they are with their group of friends (who look like they could be in a gang). The friends are seen looking impassive or at their phones (maybe can show they are actually looking at the Break the silence videos?) during the incidents. But after each incident, they look meaningfully at each other and thoughtfully at the couple. Some of the female friends start whispering together out of earshot of the couple, and two of them approach the male friends in the group. In the last scene, the couple get into another incident and the male take a stick that happens to be lying on the ground to hit the girl. At that moment, the rest of the group step forward and one of the male friends hold back the guy’s arm and say “Hey bro, no need to hit her lah. Let’s talk about this” and the males lead him away slowly.

Ah Ma only has one son, who stays in with her. Her son does not seem to be able to hold onto a stable job, but nobody knows why. Ah Ma previously could take care of herself. Unfortunately, she suffered a stroke and became wheelchair bound and requires help with her activities of daily living. And as time passes, Ah Ma has increasing signs of forgetfulness and also has mood swings from time to time. During her bad moments, she flares up at her son and sometimes hits him as well. Son does not interact much with neighbours. He once commented to next door neighbour Mdm Lee and told him that the neighbours are very noisy as they have been talking a lot. He has his suspicions that most of them are bad people and out to get him. This was strange as Mdm Lee knows that most of the neighbours are out working and are all very pleasant people. Mdm Lee will pass by Ah Ma house whenever she needs to walk downstairs. She noticed on several occasions that Ah Ma was sitting down on wheelchair and was restrained with ropes. Son was nowhere in sight. Ah Ma told Mdm Lee that she has been falling down from time to time, and so son placed her in this position so that she would not anyhow walk and fall down. There were several other incidents where Mdm Lee saw that Ah Ma seemed to be wearing the same clothes. There was also a strong stench of urine and faeces in the house. Ah Ma requested for food as she said she was hungry and has not eaten. Mdm Lee realised that Ah Ma’s son is usually not present at home and she wonders about Ah Ma’s care. She decided to ask Ah Ma’s son but he got agitated and said that he has enough people hounding him on his back. Mdm Lee struggled with what she should do about this situation. She was not sure if this was considered serious to let the authorities know. It was then she remembered that there was some organisation called a ‘Family Service Centre’ nearby who helps out in family situations. She paid a visit to them, and decided to tell the social workers about what she has observed so far.

The main focus of the video would be on elder abuse. This is because people tend to associate family violence with child/spousal abuse, and the elderly is quite a neglected population when it comes to family violence. Furthermore, there hasn't really been many videos on elderly abuse in Singapore in the recent years. To start off, the video would present an elderly being neglected at home. Her son does not allow her to go out of the house, and would buy her dinner only when he comes home, so she only gets one meal a day. When the son comes home, the son would get angry whenever his mom asks him for food or money. He would shout at her, and say things like "You're so old and useless! All you do is ask me for food and money every single day! You're so problematic!" He would then throw things towards her and slam the door to end off the argument. The first part of the video would thus demonstrate a possible family violence scenario with regards to the three aspects of family violence – physical abuse, emotional/psychological abuse, and neglect. All of these would be seen and heard by the neighbour. The neighbour would try to approach the elderly in the day when the son is not at home and encourage her to seek help. The elderly would then explain that she does not want to seek help as she is very fearful of her son and is afraid that by doing so, she would harm her son. The neighbour would go home and contemplate about whether s/he should step forward to seek help. The video should demonstrate the thought processes of the neighbour through an internal dialogue. “Should I or should I not? Can I really live watching someone else suffer, knowing that I could’ve done something?” The video would then end off with the neighbour deciding to call ComCare. This would demonstrate how neighbours can step in to stop family violence.

Scene can start with a 7 year old boy showing undesirable behavior such as using vulgarities, kicking another student and pulling their hair. The boy’s form teacher singles him out to the front of the class, scolds, and punishes him. Due to his behavior, his classmates ostracize him as well. The boy’s male PE teacher has observed his behavior and decides to approach him to understand his reasons for acting this way. The boy shares that this is how he is also treated at home. Concerned, the PE teacher decides to make a home visit to the boy’s home to speak with his family together with the school’s counsellor. During their trip to the boy’s home, both the teacher and counsellor talk about what they would do should they see injuries on the boy’s mother or should the boy’s father turn violent. They discussed resources such as Family Service Centers, PAVE, and support systems that the mother could turn to for help and advice. They also pooled in ideas on how the mother could keep herself and her son safe should her husband turn violent. Armed and ready with this information, they approach the boy’s home and knock on the door. The father opens the door and they notice multiple bruises on his face and arms. The boy runs to the door to greet his teacher and the father quickly leaves and locks himself in the bedroom. When asked how his father sustained his injuries, the boy shared that his mother had tried to hit him again and his father came to protect him. This agitated his mother even more and she lashed out on him. The scene can end with both the PE teacher and school counsellor realizing that society stereotypes victims of violence to only be women and children. They approach the father’s bedroom and encourages him to speak with them so that they can offer some advice and help. While women and children are victims of violence most of the time, such stereotypes may mean male victims tend to find it even more difficult to seek help, fearing that no one would believe them. Perhaps this story can create awareness on the fact that anyone in the family can be a victim of violence.

Story revolves around a relatively well-to-do family of three, a father, mother, and their 15 year old son. Father is a sports writer with the local newspaper, mother is a housewife but has a small but thriving online business, and their son is captain of the school’s soccer team. Both father and son endures physical, emotional, and psychological abuse from the mother. Mother calls father many times a day to check where he is, spews vulgarities and threatens to hit him if he doesn’t return home quickly. Mother tries very hard to ostracize the father from any support circles (i.e. his family, friends, colleagues) and diligently checks his phone to make sure he hasn’t been trying to seek help. Mother also calls her son names, hits him, and throws his hard-earned soccer trophies to the ground or at him when she is angry. Son cries alone in the room because he’s hurt and also because those trophies meant a lot to him. The father’s male colleague notices bite marks on his arm and other bruises and is hesitant to approach him at first. He finally plucks up the courage and invites him for a beer after work at a nearby bar. The male colleague comforts him and shares his knowledge on Family Service Centres since the father is not aware what those are. Similarly for the son, a few soccer teammates notice the bruises on his body while changing out of their sports attire. The boy lies at first that the bruises were sustained from practice but with the other boys’ understanding and encouragement, the boy shares about the violence at home. His teammates encourage/comfort him and bring him to the school’s counsellor. The idea is to create awareness that violence is not only inflicted on women but on men and boys as well. The male characters are imagined to be in, as society deems, more masculine jobs/school CCAs. The setting in which the father and son were given support and comfort were also imagined to be in more “masculine” places like a bar and a boys’ changing room. This idea also hopes to encourage men and boys to seek help if need be and that seeking help should not be something they ought to be embarrassed about.

Husband looks at wife when she leaves the house. He stares at her and bangs the table. Wife is afraid but she understands what he means. So, she goes back to her room and changes from her sleeveless top to a blouse with sleeves. She then leaves the house with her husband smiling at her and wanting to accompany her to work. Couple is in the escalator and a stranger(man) looks at her casually. Husband gets angry and asks her how she knows him and when she responds that she does not know him at all. Husband gets furious and starts scolding her and tells her that she must have seduced many men and leaves. Wife tears in silence and goes to work. At work (candy floss seller at Pasar Malam), she serves a customer (men) and spots her husband hiding from far and looking at her. He gets very furious and signals her to leave the shop. He brings her to a nearby area and starts beating himself calling himself useless as he cannot keep his wife happy and so wife is ‘friendly’ towards other men. He continues to beat himself and hit his head against the wall while wife pleads for him to stop and seeks for his forgiveness. She shares that she will not be friendly towards other men and it’s her fault for being friendly. Wife’s boss, Karen (female) happens to see this incident but as husband calms down, she interpreted it as a couple conflict and left. Another day, wife breaks down while at work and shared her stress, Karen explained that even though husband does not beat her, he controls and acts possessively against her. Thus, it is a form of psychological abuse as wife lives in fear as she is unsure of what would trigger his anger. Karen brings her to FSC to seek help.

Madam Kim (75y.o) stays with her caregiver son Darren (45 y.o) in the same estate for the past 30years. Madam Kim is a jovial auntie who enjoys gardening and spends much of her time taking care of her plants outside her house. She enjoys small chats with her neighbors who passes by her home. Her son is also to be a very polite gentleman who greets neighbors with a smile whenever he meets them at the lift. Madam Kim met with an accident and lost her ability to walk and sometimes had incontinence issue. Due to Madam Kim’s condition, Darren had to juggle between caregiving of her mum and his work in a bank. One day he made a mistake at work due to lack of rest and he was retrenched from the company. For a period of time, neighbors stopped seeing Madam Kim coming out of the house and her plants were dying. One day, one of her neighbor Linda went over to Madam Kim’s house and when Darren opened the door slightly, she noticed that Darren dressing was unkempt and seems to be impatient to speak to neighbor and quickly shut the door without speaking much to the neighbor. There was a strong stench of urine when Darren opened the door Linda felt puzzled by the behavior of the son and she decided to share this information to other residents who often gathers under the block to chit chat. Many of them discouraged Linda from getting into other family’s affair and getting herself into unnecessary trouble. In view that residents sees Darren as a polite gentleman, they assumed that it is impossible that Darren is mistreating her mum. The neighbor chose another occasion to visit Madam Kim when Darren was out of the house and knocked at the door for a long time before Madam Kim went to open the door slightly and there was a strong stench of urine coming from Madam Kim and she appears to have lost weight and had peeling lips. Before Madam Kim could say anything, the son appeared and chased the neighbor away. Neighbor felt something was wrong and reported the case to relevant authorities.

It was the PSLE period. I was trying to coach my son in his Math and getting impatient with him. I was very anxious that he still didn’t know how to solve apparently simple problems, the day before his PSLE Math! I was starting to bang the desk. Then I realised I was not really helping him if I continued to behave like that. I could see how stressed he was. Our stress was also caused by the disturbing noises coming from the opposite block – the quarrelsome couple arguing and screaming back and forth in Cantonese, almost directly across the street from my HDB Block. Tonight their quarrel seemed to be worse – crash! Something like a vase or plate was thrown! This time a child’s cries rang loud “Papa, don’t! Mummy, mummy…” Sounds of struggles and moving furniture toppling followed and the shouts and screams continued. Next came “How dare you! Followed by a string of vulgarities, and “Aaargh !!!”. “You, you, you…(more vulgar words)”. By now, neither my son nor I were concentrating on our PSLE Math practice anymore. However, I told my son, “Sorry son for daddy’s impatience. OK relax now, you can do well. Go and study with mummy a while longer then get an early sleep!” I kissed him goodnight and left to make a call to the police. I sensed something major was wrong with my neighbour. There appeared to be blood splatter on their living room window. Soon the police arrived, and an ambulance too. The whole neighbourhood was abuzz with curious onlookers. I reflected that I should have acted earlier to offer help before the incident got out of control. I felt very sad for the crying child. It was being carried away by a relative. The wife was brought away in the police car – gossiping neighbours told me she had stabbed her husband to prevent him from harming her toddler boy. Whatever they were arguing over, it was shocking that they had come to such a stage of violence. I closed my eyes and resolved to do more to intervene if there should be another such brewing case. Family Violence needs our help. Let’s all do our civic duty to plug the gaps when the cracks start to appear. Report to Family Service Centres, MSF or Police promptly.

Tina felt pain on her shoulders, but she was too deep in her sleep to wake up. Moments later, it turned to be a sharp one. She woke up, and saw her father yelling nonsensical words at the top of his voice, punching her several times. She started to cry in pain and called out for her mother. A glance at the clock showed it to be 3:30am. She jumped out of the bed and ran out of her room. Her mother was sitting at the sofa smiling to the bottles of alcohol at the coffee table while her father was still yelling in her room. She realised that her mother was drunk, again, so as her father. Their eyes were red and they did not even listen to her cries. She called her sister who is staying a few blocks away, for several times, but to no avail. She took her pet dog out for a walk, still crying on the way down. This has happened many times. The sixteen year-old is used to it and it affected her sleep that she would not be able to focus in class for days. In most situations, her parents would fight and yell at each other in the middle of the night, under the spell of alcohol. There were times when she was slapped and punched for no apparent reason. She tried many times talking to them and sometimes even scolding them but her parents just wouldn’t listen. Her sister tried too and they made a secret pact to let Tina seek refuge at her house if the situation turned bad at home. Tina, who used to be a chirpy, bubbly girl 3 years ago, became quiet and moody over time. She was so stressed out about the violence at home, she didn’t know where to seek help and the pain is too much for her to handle. She made several cuts on her arms, which eventually end up with her sitting with her form teacher for a private chat. The school counsellor was also involved and she was put under counselling. The school assessed the issue and made a report to MSF Child Protective Services to help Tina with the abusive family situation.

It was a dreaded night. I had woken up late at night because I ate very little before sleeping. There was shouting and quarrelling again – my parents! In fact, my step-father. I shall not even call him ‘Bapa’. Till this day, 6 years after he married my mother who had divorced my real father, I cannot get to call him that, except ‘Pakchik’ (uncle). He was scolding my mother again. My mother was protesting. She kept crying, sobbing – screaming ‘Jangan pukul lagi, Bang!!’ He was beating my mother calling her all kinds of bad names. His eyes were blood-shot. My little sister was clinging tightly to my mother's legs and crying loudly. As a teenage girl, I was equally fearful of my step-father. He was big-sized and he very loud and fierce. But one word he uttered against my mother – too vulgar to be written here – got me so angry I ran out and charged at him, trying to hit him with my bare hands and trying to stop him from beating my mother. It was in vain. He easily caught hold of my thin arms and twisted them behind my back. And then he….he molested me! My mother reacted angrily – she got up and grabbed a vase and cracked it over his head! My step-father let go of me and I ran. There was blood all over my step-father’s face ! He looked hideous and frightening but the knock put him in a daze. We heard the sirens of police approaching our HDB block. Our neighbours must have called the police. I stayed outside our gate until the police came to our house. By then, my step-father had sat down nursing his bleeding head. My mother surprisingly was helping him with a wet towel to help him wipe off his blood. The police started questioning my parents. My step-father was asked to follow the police to their police station. He did not come home that night. In fact, he is still not back after a week. The violence he inflicted on other mother has finally stopped. Thanks to our concerned neighbours, and thanks to my mother’s courage – we are safe now. STOP the violence from your own family members. Report to the Police to get help if necessary. If you are neighbours to a family experiencing family violence – help them!

The setting is a beautiful condo, very plush; an elderly lady leaves her beautiful tranquil apartment and as she wait for the lift, the sound of a woman screaming can be heard coming from another apartment. The elderly lady looks up, concerned, but then the lift arrives and she makes her way inside. Just as the lift doors are closing, one of her middle aged male neighbours jumps in. He has deep scratches on his face. She peers at the scratches and he self-consciously touches at his face, then apologetically explains it's from his cat. He explains it is a very highly strung, expensive and rare breed - It can behave wildly sometimes, but its the price we pay to enjoy such beauty. The elderly lady nods in cynical, unconvincing agreement. Later that week, as the elderly lady sits at home one evening, she hears a woman shrieking and screaming angrily. The next morning she meets the man in the lift again, and notices he has bruising on his face. She suggests his cat may need some help. He hangs his head, smiling weakly. Some time later the elderly lady is speaking on the phone to her daughter. She tells her she's heading to the hospital clinic for her monthly blood tests. As she is leaving the hospital she bumps into her male neighbour again. He is also leaving the hospital and is startled to see her. His head is bandaged and he looks around nervously when he sees his neighbor, as though to check no-one else is around that might recognize him. It is pouring with rain. She invites him for a coffee, to keep her company, as she says she doesn't want to head home in such weather. He reluctantly agrees. Over coffee she asks him how his cat is these days? She asks if the cat has caused his latest injuries. He hesitates before hanging his head and admitting that his cat is actually very gentle - it can't even catch geckos. The elderly lady slides a 'Break the silence' leaflet across the table towards him. She says "I don't think they can help with cats anyway, but maybe they can help you with other things that are going on in your life..." She places her hand gently on top of his and he smiles back up at her, with a look of relief.

A possible family violence scenario might not be physical where a family member hits another family member but can occur in other forms. A parent might choose to starve a child, forcing a child to stand for long periods of time, take cold water showers, eating extremely spicy/distasteful food, locking a family member out of the house at night, forcing them to sleep on the floor or to carry out many chores. In essence, a family member causes another family member suffering without any actual physical violence. This kind of family violence will be extremely difficult to detect because there are no obvious external wounds on the victim. Therefore, it really requires the victim to voice out their suffering to someone who can help. Teachers in schools can start teaching children from a very young age about family violence and the sources of help they can seek, with a refresher done every year. In addition, students can be encouraged to look out for one another because a teacher cannot possibly give equal attention to every student and peer support can sometimes be more effective and efficient. To ensure that students can recognise the different forms of family violence, they can be shown videos of family violence scenarios followed by a quiz to measure how well they can remember. Testimonials from children their age or adults who have suffered family violence in the past coming out and sharing their experiences can also encourage young people to do the same. Before marriage, people in a relationship can ensure that they have a close network of friends that they can rely on. This close network can be a form of support and advice in the unfortunate event that they face family violence at home after marriage.

The story revolves around a mentally disabled person affected by family violence. This individual could be schooling / working in e.g. the MINDS school, or their employment development facility. While their school or employment environment is safe and supportive, their home environment could be abusive (e.g. due to financial and social pressure, family members could lash out at the victim: the family may withhold food or medication, humiliate them in front of other family members, or resort to physical violence). Signs of abuse could include them being reluctant to leave their school or workplace, or indications of undernourishment and physical marks. Staff members who notice these signs could report these signs to a social worker, or call a helpline for assistance. As mental disabilities are not as widely understood or recognised by the public, people may be less perceptive of domestic abuse against someone with a mental disability. Abusive relationships between people with disabilities and their caregivers may also go unnoticed or unreported as people with disabilities may be less able to reach out for help due to fear and added reliance on their caregivers. The relationship between people with disabilities and their caregivers is also a topic that is less explored in mainstream media.

Using statistics, 3 out of 5 victims are victims of repeated abuse, and 3 out of 5 people know someone who is going through or had survived domestic abuse. So enough people know about abuse that is happening to do something about it. Using a group setting unique to Singaporeans being in a car on the highway with 5 friends in a car. Another car veers very closely causing the car to swerve. The friends in the car start panicking, but the driver is very calm and says “nvm la, it’s ok maybe the other driver is tired”. Then it happens again, and the car swerves even closer, the friends start panicking and says “EH this is very dangerous do something! Why are you so calm!” the driver says, “give him another chance, don’t worry, only 3 out of 5 people die in a car accidents” then one man screams “THAT MEANS 3 OF US IN THE CAR IS GONNA DIE” the driver says “only statistically, maybe it’s less?” now the car is pressing against them and they are pushed against the wall, sparks are flying, one of the friends says “why aren’t you doing anything! This is affecting us all!!!! I’ve never had a girlfriend before!” the driver says “well I don’t know what to do actually…. So I’m trying to ignore it, maybe he’ll drive away, aiyah Singaporean divers, what to do” another friend says “what to do?! don’t make excuses for him! 60% of the people in this car will die!” Driver says “I said 3 in 5… statistically. Actually if 3 of you die, that’s none of my business. You all got insurance?” friend says “none of your business??!! This is everyone’s business!!! It affects us all! None of us should go through this!!” the friend in the passenger seat finally rolls down his window and bangs on the other drivers window and screams “YOU NEED TO STOP DOING THIS!”. You wouldn’t put up with that. Why put up with domestic violence? In domestic abuse 3 out of 5 people know someone who is living the nightmare of domestic violence, yet the same statistic, 3 out of 5 victims are repeat victims. In the situation with the car, it is something we would not put up with, why do we put up with domestic abuse then? Don’t ignore it. Don’t make excuses.

Title: Will you regret? Target Audience: Men Brief Overview: Instead of targeting the victim (Like all video shows which is like a "cure"). Why not target the offender (Which is unique and more like a "prevention") Plot: We have a man stationed at the police station introducing himself how in landed there. It is after the domestic violence that he commited to his wife, He has lost his successful, his friends but most importantly his wife the love of his life (Perharps can start playing the flashback from his teenage years). *Optional: If there is enough time, it can be rewind all the way back to the moment he was about to slap but he think twice and hug her instead.

Hock Lee has been unemployed for 10 months now. His wife, Lucy, resents him for the strain he put on her by making her the sole breadwinner and often takes it out on him when she comes home from work. What initially started out as a few harsh remarks towards him has become frequently hitting him with her bag and high heels and throwing his clothes out while threatening to kick him out of the house. Jim, the neighbour from a few doors down, has been hearing the sounds of abuse and often sees Hock Lee looking very down in the dumps when the both pick up their children from Kindergarten. He wants to tell Hock Lee about the different ways he can seek help, but also understands that as a man, it might be hard for him to talk about this face to face. One day at the playground, he folds the flyer with the different ways to seek help into a paper aeroplane. Hock Lee picks up the paper aeroplane and feels hopeful that there are ways to seek help.

Cases of transnational marriage which involves both the push factor of female 'marriage migrants' seeking a better life abroad and a pull factor of the ‘unmarriageable bachelors’ with instant available 'life-line" to get the female 'marriage migrants' into Singapore often results in certain intrinsic risk factors that make the female 'marriage migrants' particularly vulnerable to Intimate Partner Violence. Female 'marriage migrants' who are trapped in battered and abusive marriages are surprisingly reported being satisfied with their life and did not reach out for help. Although the female 'marriage migrants' are resilient and have some resources to cope with violence, but reports of health and behavioral problems associated with the family violence demand for greater understanding of the interaction between “polity” and “community” in such transnational marriages.

A student sees bruises on her friend's arms one day in school and confronts her about it. The friend lies and says she fell and got injured, and the student believes. The next day, the student sees more bruises and other marks of abuse being badly hidden underneath bandages on the friend's arms. When confronted, the friend lies again and the student gets suspicious. At the end of school, the student bids goodbye to her friend. She sees the friend's older sister waiting for the friend outside of the school, who also acknowledges the student and says bye to her happily. Remembering the sight of the badly hidden injuries earlier in the day, the student follows them home to investigate. The student observes to see no sign of abuse on the walk home behind them, and the two sisters board the lift. From the lift window, the student's perception of the situation changes for the worse when she gets a glimpse of the older sister beating the younger sister (student's friend) before the lift ascends. As the student knows which floor her friend lives at, she climbs the stairs and reaches the house door only to hear sounds of screaming and verbal insults, as well as sounds of beating/slapping etc. The student intervenes and calls for the friend outside to let her know of her presence. The older sister (abuser) answers the door and the student explains she has to speak with her friend about homework, masking the fact that she wants to console her friend and call the Comcare helpline to help #breakthesilence. The older sister fakes a smile and says the younger sister is busy in order to hide the sign of abuse, but the student insists the subject matter is important and has to be discussed immediately. The older sister eventually agrees, letting the younger sister come out but not before forcing her to hide the bruises. The friend consoles her at an area hidden from the house door. She calls the Comcare helpline.

Scenario - Parents get into a fight and it becomes abusive. It can be an emotional or physical abuse. It will affect the whole family including the children especially at a young age. #Breakthesilence - If you're a kid, talk to an adult like a school teacher or relative. If you're a young adult, talk to your older siblings to sit both parents down and talk to both of them. Show them you love them and that they should talk it out instead of causing hurt. It's always important to talk to them in person or with someone you trust. With social media now, call out the abusive person in public that would be the fastest way to stop the abuse immediately.

Keeping silent about family violence you observe extends to more than just ignorance and keeping mum. People often ‘drown’ the silence of cries or screams by turning on the television volume up, plugging into their earpiece, and going on social media – basically they turn to anything to help them ignore the family violence that they hear. Because out of sight (or sound), out of mind right?  The video can start by depicting a situation where a family hears a case of family violence, be it screams from physical abuse, cries from neglected children, or the muffled sobs of a tortured spouse. These sound will instinctively make people uncomfortable, and the different family members will be shown to ‘drown’ the sound and withdraw into their personal space, all to create a comfortable silence. Father will turn up the television volume, son will plug in his earphones on the computer, and mother will speak over the phone even louder – anything to recreate a comfortable ‘silence’.  But as the family soon realise, these distractions are temporal. Phone batteries run low, and televisions have to be switch off, but sounds stemming from family violence are much more pervasive. In the end, they realise that the only way to stop the uncomfortable situation is to #BreakTheSilence. The family can be shown to put down their distractions and come together in the living room to confront the situation, either by calling the COMCARE hotline, or paying a visit to the family that requires attention.

The scene starts out with a male office worker receiving a phone call from home. The male office worker's wife called to report angrily that his mother is throwing a tantrum again and refuses to eat her food and throws all the food on the floor. The wife has had enough trying to care for his mother who has dementia and asked him to send his mother into a nursing home. Scene cuts to various moments in the past where wife was patient with her mother in law's dementia behaviour and slowly progresses to frustration and violence as the behaviour worsens (slapping, shouting or pinching the mother in law when she misbehaves) with each moment ending with a teary phone call to her husband at work. Scene cuts back to the home when the husband comes back after a long day's work and was stop by a concerned neighbour is also a caregiver for her own parent who has dementia who says that she often hears his wife shouting and beating the mother in law, maybe he should seek help for his wife as she is facing a lot of caregiver stress caring for her mother in law and also place his mother-in-law in a dementia day care centre to give both parties well-being. #breakthesilence

A man ,middle age , in an argument with spouse , thinks he hears laughter and is triggered maybe by stress or ego into rage. He hits out at spouse engages in verbal altercation, reacts to what he believes is his right to beat spouse into submission. The family is unable to keep calm to react, shouting ensues, the police is called in the ruckus. A neighbour calls out to man to calm down while protecting himself from man's rage putting two hands in front of him. the man's blows lighten but he is still frustrated and volatile, can't quench his exploding emotions. Wife and children are crying, man rages on till police arrive. husband and wife are separated and counselled while wife is adviced to go to maternal home for a respite with the children. Man is still courageous and showy, asking police to take him to jail . Family is unable to communicate currently but for now the storm is over. Background triggers:are multiple. Inability to cope with stressors is sure. Had the neighbour not intervene the spouse and child would have been more endangered by the man's blind rage and unidentified or unheeded depression or mental status. So intervention especially by someone both party can trust and accept and who is neutral is important since the family is unable in their emotions to cope with the situation.

Scenario: Mary has just gotten married 3 months ago. It was a happy occasion, and she invited Jane and her husband to attend as guests. Recently, however, Jane has noticed Mary looking more sickly and pale in some recent photos that she has been tagged in on Facebook. A few weeks later, Mary changes her Facebook profile picture, and Jane notices that Mary is suddenly wearing much thicker make-up. Jane comments to her husband that Mary never used to put make-up at all in the past, and is surprised to see her doing so now. Jane muses to herself that Mary looks like she could use some support and reacts to the profile picture with a “love” emoji, hoping to send some online warmth to her friend. She then closes her laptop and goes to sleep, pushing the matter aside. However, in the weeks following this, Jane frequently sees Mary sharing Facebook articles on coping with depression, dealing with hurt and living with difficult people. She also notices strange and potentially suicidal status updates from Mary such as “It hurts so much, what is the point of going on?”, “Nothing I do is right at home, I should just go and die”. Jane reacts to these updates with a “sad face” emoji, and gets increasingly concerned for Mary. Solution: Jane sends Mary a private Facebook message, asking her how she is. She tells Mary that married life is always challenging and that she should not be so hard on herself. Mary replies and says that it is not she who is being hard on herself, but her husband. She then sends Jane photos of some of the wounds on her arms caused by her husband. Alarmed, Jane tells Mary that she is here for her and suggests that perhaps the 4 of them (Jane, Mary and both their husbands) can meet up over lunch to talk about things. She reassures Mary that they will handle the subject tactfully, and that if things get ugly, Mary can always stay at Jane’s house for some time while she makes a police report. Mary agrees and they agree to meet for lunch on the coming Saturday.

limo: While the attention had mainly been on blatant physical abuse, what falls through the cracks are individuals suffering from less serious forms of violence that do not cause significant injury, or even emotional abuse that does not escalate into serious physical injury but is still violent in nature. The victims are scarred, yet are often confused about whether the perpetrator are clearly wrong especially if they also show care in other moments. They could even blame themselves or erroneously think they're deserving of the violence. What would help is if those in positions of influence around them, such as teachers, religious leaders, elder etc can learn to observe non-physical symptoms of abuse (e.g. If the victim has become more withdrawn, jittery, fearful etc) and use their privileged position to connect with the victim to understand their circumstances. Their sympathy could help the victims to open up about the violence they face in private but don't publicly show. They could then advise the victim from an outsider's objective perspective on whether what they have suffered constitutes family violence, and help them allay their inner confusion if any. They could then guide them to seek help, or even to step in to encourage the perpetrator to seek professional assistance with their own troubles (e.g. Anger management, stress etc.), or arrange counselling sessions to help with the relationship and hopefully reduce violence.

The scenario is based on a mother abusing her daughter at night every day. The mother, Lisa, is an office lady and works from 9-6 PM. She often receive immense stress from her bosses and herself. While she keeps her emotions in office, she will release them when she reaches home. Lisa lives with her husband and a 9-year-old daughter, Penny. Her husband often takes night-shift jobs. In the past, whenever Lisa goes home after work, Penny was excited to share what she has learnt from school. Lisa tried to give her attention but as time goes on, Lisa was unable to control her emotions and rant it on Penny. Penny starts to get hit by her mother whenever she asked her mother about her homework. Any simple question asked by Penny will cause her to be beaten by her mother numerously. There were also time where Lisa pulled Penny to the bathroom and beat her with her bare hands. After a few months, Penny is often seen crying and tugging her hand alone in the bathroom. The constant beating and scolding by her mother caused her to be helpless. When she is at school, her friends often ask her why she has scratches on her neck and arms but Penny avoided the question. As time goes by, neighbours start to raise suspicion over the family's unit because of the constant crying and screaming at night. People start to ask around what is happening with Penny's family. One of the neighbours, who is Penny's classmate, reported to her teacher, Mrs Tan. One day, Mrs Tan decided to approach Penny and her parents separately. (Includes "Stop Family Violence" hotline)

In 2016, the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) probed 873 child abuse cases, almost 60 per cent more than the 551 cases in 2015. (The Straits Times, 2017) Appalled by the growth of such cases and my affinity to the young audience as a youth myself, I would like to propose an idea for the one minute film on child abuse. As a teenager, I used to read TEENAGE magazine in which there is a column called “Kelly’s advice”. It was devastating to see the occurrence of family abuse on young children and to see how vulnerable and scared they are due to the lack of voice and power to change the situation. Especially in today’s face-paced and achievement-oriented society, parents tend to exert more pressure on their children to get better grades. Asian values of being competitive also lead to higher expectations on child’s performance. In some cases when parents cross the line and abuse their child, the family unit becomes unstable and a victim is born. Title of film: MUTED | The Cry The film will focus on a 12 years old boy who brings home his failed results and shows his parents. Angered by the child’s poor performance, parents violently cane him and verbally abused him using words like “USELESS”, “FAILURE” and “STUPID”. Boy crouches at a corner of the room with his hands covering his head (camera to zoom in on the child’s facial expression), numb to the physical pain. Sound to focus on parents’ verbal abuse as boy bits his lips and endures the pain. Classmate chanced upon his bruises during pe lesson and brings him to their caring form teacher. Aware of the situation, the teacher pats his head gently and asks “Are you alright?”, boy finally breaks down and cry. (symbol of help arrives and scene ends) The film will start off in the private sphere of the family unit (the child and his parents) before zooming out to show how others (classmate and teacher) can step in and help. (#breakthesilence). The cry at the end highlights the sorrow the abused children repress because they either do not know who to approach for help or they are scared that by voicing out, they will get into further trouble and get punished more severely. This highlights how external help is crucial in making a change in their lives.

When there is a dispute between parents or work stress they show to the kids. Relatives or Grandparents aware of this also keeping quiet as they don't want their Children to be punished. Yet no one understand the tears and fear on the little. I will do what is right. Seek help from Police and bring the kids to medical assist. Let the parents go counseling and well prepare to take the kids back home.

A little girl, while running along the corridor curiously peeped through the tiny door gap of her neighbour's unit. She saw a man beating a little boy repeatedly using his right hand. She gasped and left the unit hurriedly. On one fine day, the little girl and her mummy stepped into the lift with the abusive dad and son who was beaten up the other day. The son is continuously trying to maintain a distance from the dad inside the lift. The girl observed some obvious bruises on the face of the little boy. The little boy realised the gaze coming from the little girl and tried to cover up the bruises. The little girl turns and squints angrily at the dad who was patiently waiting for the lift to arrive at the 12th storey. The little girl turns back to the boy and sympathetically asked him "Is it painful?" The little boy did not reply, so the girl decided to touch one of the bruises. The boy immediately cried out in pain, triggering his dad to scold the little girl and push her away. The little girl's mother quickly stepped in and apologized for her daughter's actions. The little girl childishly and cheekily retorted, "If you protect your kid from being bullied by outsiders, why are you bullying him at home?" Right after, the little boy's dad and the little girl's mother both stared at the little girl and was speechless. Morale of the Story: These scenes exemplify how one parent can be protective of his or her child in the public eye, but is not able to exhibit self-control when it comes to disciplining the child. Incorrect disciplining of one's child or poor handling of self-emotions may potentially evolve to family violence if left unattended or untreated.

Scenario: The protagonist is taking a bowl from the shelf. The bowl accidentally slips through the fingers, but the protagonist manages to catch it before it reaches the ground. Coincidentally, a glass/ceramic smashing sound can be heard from the adjacent unit. Quickly, the sounds of door slamming and crying from a child ensue. These sounds are not stranger to the protagonist and have been going on for days. The protagonist is concerned but didn’t know what to do, and consulted the spouse during dinner. The spouse suggests an idea. The next scene shows the protagonist and the spouse sitting in the home of other neighbours, chatting with them and seeking for their support to assist this affected unit. Nearing dawn of next morning, when the affected unit's members were still sleeping, the protagonist and the spouse, together with other neighbours pasted pink post-it notes (with consolidated we-care and get-help messages) on the windows beside the main door of the affected unit, in the form of a love "shape". (This particular scene can be excluded from the video) When the first rays of morning light starts seeping in through the windows, a heart shape slowly materializes on the window from the inside of the unit. A man walks out of the unit and sees the messages on the notes. The protagonist and the spouse, together with other neighbours, all lying in wait for the man, approached the man to talk. Message: The police and social healthcare organizations are not able to fully monitor family violence situations around the clock. Neighbours are often one of the closest people one can reach out to. They are the eyes of the community. When more neighbours in the community take a proactive role and come forward to assist, there is greater awareness and support for the affected unit. In general, the scenario shows a non-confrontational approach by neighbours to show care to a unit possibly affected by family violence. Sometimes, the abuser requires more help than the victim.

A secondary school boy comes from a single parent family with an abusive dad. They are both foreigners who moved to Singapore for him to get a better education here, but school fees are expensive as they are not Singapore citizens. His father does not earn much and works long hours as a stall owner in a coffeeshop. Together, they share a small rented HDB flat. He does decently well in school but his grades are not up to his father's standards. Thus, he is constantly beaten up (punched, slapped, caned) by his unsatisfied father as the father feels he has wasted a lot of money on the costly school fees when his son has not performed well. His father even threatens to withdraw him from school, thinking that his son has no hope in studying and excelling in academics. A friend sees that this boy is constantly alone, always looking depressed in school despite scoring well. He also notices the marks and bruises on his body. He tells his parents about this friend of his and together, they decide to #BreakTheSilence by confronting the boy's father and asking him to stop abusing his son. They even offer to help pay his school fees and provide for his basic needs if he cannot afford it. The father is very touched by this generous act and sincere kindness. After some reflection, he decides to stop mistreating his son and be more lenient on him. The friend's initiative helped to stop the violence going on in the boy's home and mend his relationship with his father.

Stephen is sitting at his class desk with his headphones on. All he hears is his music, while a group of classmates gather behind gossip about him. They discuss about why his arms are covered with bruises. They conclude that most probably Stephen is a victim of family abuse back at home. At home, Stephen continues studying while still having his headphones on. As usual, all he can hear is his music. In the background, a chair hits the floor and we see his parents quarrelling. The argument escalates into throwing blows at each other. A lamp bumps to the floor and the crash is loud enough for even Stephen to hear. Stephen drops his books and walks over to his parent. Before any other action can be seen, the scene cuts to Stephen heading to bed. He has a bruise on his lip. He rests his head on the pillow and takes off the headphones. The silence of the house brings a peaceful smile to his face and he falls asleep. Back to school and the classmates are back to gossiping once again about the new bruises that they see on Stephen. This time, Stephen pulls one side of his headphones off to hear a peep of the conversation. He hears the gossip, but also a loud irritating humming noise, representing the sound of negativity. Chaos erupts back at home. Now, small item are thrown back and forth between Stephen’s parents. Stephen walks over once again but scene cuts to him in bed taking off his headphones. A montage of school-home-bed repeats and we see Stephen distressed. Finally, we see Stephen at home studying with the headphones on. His parents assault each other again and Stephen once again walks over. Stephen pulls his father away from his mother. His mother attempts a slap to his father but it hits Stephen instead. His father is enraged by how mother hit Stephen and tries to land a hit of his own. Father’s slap hits the headphones off Stephen. Stephen stares at the headphones on the floor. Now he can’t avoid the loud humming. He weeps, which causes his parents to stand back. Cut to a close up of Stephen crying. We still hear the loud humming until Stephen finally opens his mouth to speak. He says in a weeping voice “Ma, Pa, I love you. Please stop fighting for me.”

Thoughts of shouting and caning flashed through her mind as she recalls the constant caning and verbal abuse she had to go through when she was younger. No one knew what she was going through. She couldn’t concentrate in class, and she always feared going home. She was warned not to seek help, or tell anyone about the abuse she was going through. Her dad, too, was a victim- even though he had earning power, he never had his own financial freedom, her mom was in control of his finance. Despite that, he never dared retaliate or go against her mom for he knew that she’ll be the one hurting (physically and emotionally) in the end. I (her teacher) noticed how listless she looked in class and the faint scars that could be seen on her calves. When asked about it, she smiles and walks away. It seemed a little odd and strange to me, and I started probing more as about her life and eventually the scars on her legs. She started opening up to me and told how her mom has been emotionally and physically abusing her dad and her. I eventually brought her to the family violence specialist centre where she could seek help, where the specialist could follow up with her and her family. #BreakTheSilence

- Husband as victim of family violence (spousal abuse) - Wife throws things at him and hits him in her anger, pursues him when he tries to get away, aggressively bangs on the door when he hides, provokes and berates him by questioning his manliness in not retaliating - Husband does not want to cause harm to his wife as he loves her - Husband is unwilling to report as he feels he would be stigmatized and does not want wife to get into trouble - Husband is unable to get through to wife and communicate with her as their conversations always end up escalating into conflicts - The couple has a young child, m/2 who frequently witnesses such incidents. Although not physically involved or victimized, there is a noticeable emotional impact on child who is beginning to question why mommy hits daddy. - The child is taken care of by a domestic helper who is a protective factor to the child and in a position to #breakthesilence - Victims of family violence are often portrayed as women whereas perpetrators are portrayed as men. The unintended result of this is biased view of the realities of family violence and stigma towards men who may suffer as victims as their masculinity could be called into question (This is also, unfortunately, a byproduct of portrayal in society as well as prevalent patriarchal ideas). - As affluence in many Singaporean families has risen, many have taken to hiring domestic helpers to help manage the caregiving and raising of their children. Domestic helpers are in a unique position in these families as, living with the families, they witness what most may not. In view of this there is value in also reaching out to domestic helpers and empowering them to #breakthesilence as perhaps many are witnesses of family violence as well but may not know what to do. - Domestic helpers may not be the conventional or expected sort of ‘bystander’ to family violence but are crucial witnesses of such events which, in view of increased affluence, could be happening in more private settings such as condominiums and landed property which is further secluded from the average bystander.

When she refuses to bathe, her children pinch her in order to get her to do what she says. When she refuses to eat, her children will throw away her food, leaving her hungry. Her children refuse to spend time with ah ma because she will only “talk nonsense” and lock her in the house during the day so that she cannot go out because she will get lost. The domestic helper employed by the next door neighbour can hear ah ma being beaten and scolded as being “useless” and sees her crying in the day whenever she walks by their house because she is so lonely. However, she is too afraid to speak up, fearing that she will be get into trouble. As the days go by, she sees ah ma getting thinner, black and blue from all the beatings as well as crying throughout the day. One day, after seeing ah ma go with a big bruise on her check and going through the rubbish bin looking for food, she decides that she must do something and after seeing the #BreakTheSilence advertisement at the supermarket, calls the police to ask for help.

It’s slightly past midnight, where sweethearts venture out under the protection of darkness and silence. A couple walks through an estate’s park, surrounded by un-lit homes. Suddenly a slap, a shout, and finally a wail for it to stop. Darkness and silence still prevails, and it happens again and again. The darkness is soon cut by lights beginning to turn on, curious shadow heads appearing in the light. Voices begin piercing through the silence, showing their murmuring dismay for what is happening. Soon more lights turn on, and more voices are heard with clarity, a collective community call for justice, as loud and clear as daybreak. “you stop it ah” “I can see you” “you better leave her alone” “I video-ed the whole thing down” Chimes through the night air. Then the sounds of cameras flashes, and gates being opened join in. These faceless sounds and voices have become real. Lights and sounds begin closing onto our perp within this pressure cooker of community strength. Our perp, knowing he’d been found out, waves, too little too late, apologizing and almost trying to shield himself from the ever increasing lights and sounds display. He helps his victim up, and begins his walk of shame. But a very different walk for our victim this night.

Every night, Mr Lim from the 11th floor will come home drunk, in a few instance when i met him in the lift, i can smell alcohol on him and he had to hold himself against the lift walls to keep himself upright. Some times late at night around close to 12 am, i will hear screamings from the above level to where i am situated. He and his wife will fight and quarrel and it has happened for about half a year already. I had a few encounters of his wife while taking the elevator up, i did not had the courage to talk to her but i have seen the both of them together before quarreling in the lift. She was a sweet, timid woman who does not talk much. One day i saw her weeping at the void deck, i decided to approach her and asked her what happened. She told me that her husband comes home drunk almost every night and when he is home in the middle of the night, he will wake her up, beat and shout at her and demand money from her. I was baffled when i heard it and shared with her Comcare call hotline for her to protect herself. I told her that this cannot carry on and she should find ways and means to protect her.

In a densely populated country like Singapore where most people stay in HDB flats, neighbours would typically be the first to notice an instance of family violence due to close proximity. Domestic violence taking the form of child or spouse abuse is common, especially if the father/husband is someone of hot temperament or in a drunken state. However, neglect of a family member could be sometimes a more subtle and often disregarded. Examples would be not given enough to eat, being left alone, or not taken to the doctor when one is ill. To break the silence, it often takes individual effort to understand the victim’s situation in order to offer the appropriate help. For illustration purposes, it has caught the attention of a housewife as she, on several occasions when hanging around in the neighbourhood or doing her marketing, chanced upon a young child eating some leftover food at hawker centres or fast food chains like MacDonald’s. On an occasion when she caught the child stealing bread from a local bakery for consumption, she did not report to the police or store owner; instead, she bought a loaf of bread and handed it over to the child. Sitting him down at a playground, she explained to him that stealing is wrong and understood that he resorted to such measures as his parents had not provided him with any money and food. Bringing him home (to know his address), she made an arrangement with the child to meet at a specified location at 12pm everyday, where she would pass him some bread/ food. When the child did not turn up for 2 days consecutively, she dropped him a visit at his house and realised that he had fallen very ill but left at home without proper medical attention. She stepped in to call the ambulance and followed up with social workers to assist the boy in dealing with this case of child abuse (neglect). To you, it could be just a loaf of bread which costs a mere $3, but to the child, that could very well be his three meals. For the love and warmth received, it is priceless. #BreakTheSilence

7 year-old talkative Peter sat beside Mike in class on the first day of school in Primary 1 and they became best friends as they clicked immediately. They ate together during recess, played catching together and they had the habit of sharing a piece of kit-kat by breaking it nicely into half. Recently, Peter noticed a bump on Mike’s forehead which Mike tried to cover with his fringe and a few faint bruises on his arm. “What are these?”, Peter pointed to the bruises. However, unlike his usual self, Mike only said he fell down and walked away. Peter was also upset because he didn’t get to share his favourite kit-kat with Mike that day. While walking home after school, Peter took out the piece of kit-kat, broke it into half as usual and started munching on one half. Out of the blue, he heard a loud slap and some shouting at a corner of the void deck so he peaked over. To his surprise, he saw Mike crying with one hand on his cheek (as though he was being slapped) while Mike’s mum was pointing and shouting at Mike angrily. Peter looked at his remaining half kit-kat, walked towards them and stretched out his hand with the piece of kit-kat towards Mike’s mum, “Would you like to have my last piece of chocolate? My mum said that chocolates always make you feel better!” Notes: This story is meant to emphasize that the perpetrator of family violence may not necessarily be men as well as to highlight how adults should learn from children to #BreakTheSilence of family violence through simple actions instead of adopting a “mind your own business” attitude.

At a high level, customer analytics provide an understanding of your customers' experience—primarily across sites, apps, and other customer engagement points (call centers, for instance). These insights can then be used to inform targeting, marketing, and product decisions. Although these insights are critical, customer analytics alone do not tell the full story. The truth is that brands using more than one or two channels to reach their target markets may be missing vital details about the many touchpoints across the full customer journey and throughout their marketing mix. Data-driven attribution tracks and values all touchpoints that lead to a desired outcome (regardless of whether the customer ended up on a brand's website). Think of attribution as the peanut butter to analytics' jelly. Yes, each is great on its own, but for many, they're even better together. Another misconception is that the use of one of these types of measurement capabilities negates the other. Not true. Think of attribution as the peanut butter to analytics' jelly. Yes, each is great on its own, but for many, they're even better together. With both analytics and attribution in place, you can establish a holistic measurement plan with unified key performance indicators (KPIs). In doing so, you can manage your marketing spend so that you can best reach, influence, motivate, and drive your audience to those places where they can engage and convert. Here we'll show how the strategic use of both can lead to better measurement. How Better Measurement Works To gain a better understanding of why and how a company would use both analytics and attribution, let's take a look at the following hypothetical scenario:

Apple Inc. is an American multinational technology company headquartered in Cupertino, California that designs, develops, and sells consumer electronics, computer software, and online services. The company's hardware products include the iPhone smartphone, the iPad tablet computer, the Mac personal computer, the iPod portable media player, the Apple Watch smartwatch, the Apple TV digital media player, and the HomePod smart speaker. Apple's consumer software includes the macOS and iOS operating systems, the iTunes media player, the Safari web browser, and the iLife and iWork creativity and productivity suites. Its online services include the iTunes Store, the iOS App Store and Mac App Store, Apple Music, and iCloud. Apple was founded by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ronald Wayne in April 1976 to develop and sell personal computers. It was incorporated as Apple Computer, Inc. in January 1977, and sales of its computers saw significant momentum and revenue growth for the company. Within a few years, they had hired a staff of computer designers and had a production line. Apple went public in 1980 to instant financial success. Over the next few years, Apple shipped new computers featuring innovative graphical user interfaces, and Apple's marketing commercials for its products received widespread critical acclaim. However, the high price tag of its products and limited software titles caused problems, as did power struggles between executives at the company. Jobs resigned from Apple and created his own company. As the market for personal computers increased, Apple's computers saw diminishing sales due to lower-priced products from competitors, in particular those offered with the Microsoft Windows operating system. More executive job shuffles happened at Apple until then-CEO Gil Amelio in 1997 decided to buy Jobs' company to bring him back. Jobs regained position as CEO, and began a process to rebuild Apple's status, which included opening Apple's own retail stores in 2001, making numerous acquisitions of software companies to create a portfolio of software titles, and changed some of the hardware technology used in its computers. It again saw success and returned to profitability. In January 2007, Jobs announced that Apple Computer, Inc. would be renamed Apple Inc. to reflect its shifted focus toward consumer electronics and announced the iPhone, which saw critical acclaim and significant financial success. In August 2011, Jobs resigned as CEO due to health complications, and Tim Cook became the new CEO.

Abuse is usually an attempt by a family member to apply control through threats, fear, verbal abuse or violence. Victims of family violence may be cut off from friends, family and neighbours and lose their network of social support. With time, the abuser may use more severe methods to maintain control. Eventually the violence may lead to serious injury and can result in hospitalisation, or even death.
