As a young woman takes the first step toward recovery from her violent past, she must survive the horror created by her own mind.
Breakaway is a story about Annie Lee's path toward recovery from effects of domestic violence. However, in order to take the first step in that direction, she must survive the horror created by her own mind.
The film's visual approach follows the trajectory of Annie's path: at first awash in saturated colors and light to grow opaque and shadow-filled as the story turns in a darker direction. In addition, the steady camera work grows more unstable as Annie’s mental state and sense of reality begin to crumble. In the end, we return to the light and stability - but this time with the subtle presence of the underlying darkness that never quite goes away.
Thematically, Breakaway deals with the idea of terror at home: we always think of terror as an outside force, but what happens when that force comes from within? When you cannot hide, run, or break away from it? Can Annie overcome the terror at home and move past it?
