Director: Tracy Schott | USA | 2015 | 73mins.
On March 16, 2011, 27-year old Jennifer Snyder was murdered by her married boyfriend of more than two years, after he learned that she was pregnant. He shot Jenn and then dumped her body in a wooded ravine. He was arrested six days later, eventually pleading guilty to avoid the death penalty. When the filmmaker learned of Jenn’s murder, she was shocked to learn that homicide is the leading cause of death during pregnancy. Why wasn’t the media talking about this? Why was every case covered like it was a fluke, just some guy “snapping”? Conversations with experts and survivors of intimate partner homicide help us to find Jenn’s voice, and understand the dangers overlooked by so many. They give a voice to the voiceless and leave the viewer with a message that is hard to forget.
