A heart-wrenching video showing a young woman's escalating injuries from abuse has gone viral after being posted on reddit.

The video's Serbian title translates to "One photo a day in the worst year of my life" and is a shocking twist on the popular one-photo-per-day video style we've seen before.

This one however is less art project and more public service message about the realities of domestic abuse.

The photo series starts with a smiling woman, colourfully dressed and in a variety of locations. Soon her smile fades, bruises and blood cover her face and choke lines appear on her neck.

The final slide shows her holding a sign that translates to "Help me, I do not know if I can wait for tomorrow," according to one translation. HuffPost Canada commenter markinthedark says that in Serbian, the translation is "I don't know if I will get to see tomorrow" — implying that the woman may not live to see another day.

The video's origins are still unclear and it's unknown if the injuries depicted are real or illustrative. However, It definitely looks to be some sort of public service announcement based on the sign at the end and the video's quality, but no one seems to be taking responsibility for it yet. It's the only video posted by YouTube user fero061982.

Domestic violence is a "persistent and serious problem" in Serbia according to Canada's refugee and immigration board. Last December, the country ratified the Council of Europe's Convention on Preventing and Combating Violence against Women and Domestic Violence which obligates them to track incidents of violence, the Southeast European Times reports.
