A short poetry dance film set to "14 (for December 6)," a spoken word commentary by Evalyn Parry about societal and media responses to violence against women, with the 20th anniversary of the Montreal Massacre* as the central focus. The film includes performances from 14 female dancers, showcasing a variety of world dance traditions, symbolizing that violence against women can happen to any woman, anywhere.

*The Montreal Massacre: On December 6, 1989, an armed man walked into L'Ecole Polytechnique, a school for engineering at the University of Montreal. He murdered 14 women shouting, "I hate feminists." This film is dedicated to those 14 women along with all of the women who have been victims of violence and/or are still at risk.
