"Citizen Pinoy" tells the story of Anne whose American dream turned into a nightmare when her marriage with an American citizen ended up in domestic abuse. Atty. Michael J. Gurfinkel sits down with Anne as she shares the extreme abuse she went through before meeting Gurfinkel in a chance encounter at the Philippine Consulate in Hawaii. With the help of Gurfinkel, Anne filed a Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) self-petition that includes divorce from her abusive husband. After her traumatic experience, Anne now works for the Domestic Violence Action Center in Hawaii.
