Overview

Every day we read about brutal, senseless crimes. We shudder in horror at the details. We move on. The families of the victims do not have that luxury. Shattered tells their stories of living with the aftermath of losing a loved one to violence and rebuilding broken lives.

Families feel isolated and ignored in a system often more concerned with the rights of the perpetrator than of the victims or their families. From the harrowing details of the crimes themselves, Shattered examines the often-overlooked aspects of how families are treated by the system and what changes need to be introduced. It examines the law, Irish society and the prison system and analyses the argument that Ireland is becoming a more dangerous place.

Shattered is a story of loss, heartbreak, anguish and frustration - but also, ultimately, the hope and resilience of the human spirit.
