About this submission
"Unraveling" is a dramatic investigation of the complicated relationship between an abuser and a loved one, demonstrated by Rory, the protagonist, and Leyla, his kid sister who is quietly clinging to the brother she thought she knew. When discussing high-profile predators, we forget that they have families too. We don’t address their trauma and disillusion with being closely associated with monsters. These are people who, at one time, were their support system, their friends, their biggest fans. This film seeks to show that the loved ones of abusers are victims we don’t talk about.
