The kitchen knife symbolizes domestic violence and appears at one point in the video only to show that domestic violence is present even though you can't see it. It is often subtle, but no less painful.

The wooden floor symbolizes home, a place where women should feel safe and comfortable, but don't.

The ground symbolizes reality as well. Women should be grounded in reality and feel things as they truly are. Facing reality is extremely difficult, but women who do will be able to start dreaming and start living again.

I chose to sing without instruments, a human voice stripped of any artifice, instruments and disguises, in order to show things as they really are.
