Synopsis:
“Violence” is a film about a young man named Ephraim who’s dealing with being outcast and bullied at school, and a contemptuous relationship with his father at home. His choices, instead of bringing him closer to a positive resolution, only lead him further away and the situation spiraling out of control.
