Domestic Violence 2 picks up, in a sense, where Domestic Violence leaves off, showing how the states legal system deals with domestic violence. Filmed over eight weeks in Hillsborough County, Tampa, Florida, the film documents cases in the courts as the deal with such issues as bail, bonds, release bending trial, the specific content of injunctions, restraining orders, defining bounds for parental contact with children, support payments, and the courts rulings on fault and punishment.
