Endlich frei! A SAT.1 documentary event

They have experienced domestic violence. They have survived domestic violence. Elli, Sarah and Laura film their upsetting stories in “Endlich frei!” – and at the same time use them to give courage. In the SAT.1 documentary event for International Women’s Day 2023, they show how they were able to fight their way out of a violent relationship with their ex-boyfriend, ex-husband or stepfather. They tell of their first brutal assaults, death threats and, in open conversation with host Marlene Lufen, tell of how they managed to break out of the spiral of violence and save themselves. Watch on JOYN.
