Three women reach a turning point in their lives. Delia is a young mother stuck in an abusive relationship with her husband for the last twelve years. One night, after he brutally beats her, Delia finally attempts to reclaim some of the power she had lost. Greta is an ambitious cookbook editor at the crossroads of life, trying to face the spectre of infidelity whilst enduring her relationship with her kind but dreary husband. And Paula is thrust into crisis after having a near-death experience. Driving to her mother's home, she picks up a hitchhiker, a badly beaten young boy who helps her discover a new sense of spirit. Personal Velocity tells the stories of three women struggling to make sense of their lives. Each of them is forced to make a decision - a decision that will change their lives forever. The film had won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2002 Sundance Film Festival.
