The project


Young and infatuated with one another, 17-year-old Zoe and her boyfriend Jake seem like the perfect high school couple, but behind the façade lies a secret. Their relationship is ultimately tested when Zoe grows closer to co-worker Tomas and Jake’s insecurities surface.

Unpacking the stages of a relationship becoming violent in multiple forms and exploring the factors that trap the victim, Boyfriend tells a very intimate story within the large discourse of youth domestic violence.
