Homicide is the leading cause of death during pregnancy! When Jennifer Snyder is murdered by her married boyfriend after she becomes pregnant, her family is thrown into a nightmare of grief, accusations and media frenzy. A week after her murder, Jenn's aunt contacts the filmmaker and asks for her help in telling Jenn's story. So begins a four year journey into the world of intimate partner violence, experienced by many, but understood by few. Finding Jenn's Voice examines the characteristics of controlling and coercive relationships and provides viewers with information that could save their lives. Top domestic violence experts provide the latest research on the topic, while conversations with women who have survived homicide attempts put a face on the problem and give a voice to the victims. Finding Jenn's Voice is a suspenseful and emotional ride through the terror of living with the threat of being killed by someone that you love. The film provides a timely expose of intimate partner violence that looks beyond the black eye.
