Monsters in the Closet

A child's ordinary bedtime routine is often times incomplete without the parent's or caregivers feigned search for the scary monsters that lurk under the bed and in the closet, accompanied by the comforting reassurance that every dark crevice is vacant of evil. All too often however, such a re-assurance is not entirely true. Real monsters don't hide in the closet, they hide at the bedside under the guise of a guardian and blur their violence or anger under the pretense of love, discipline, or trust. Monsters in the Closet depicts how child abuse is veiled from society by the fog of lies abusive caregivers tell to their children, themselves, and to the world.
