Synopsis of the movie. This is a gritty short, about the pain of loss. This is a character driven movie. It is a provocative look at the inner life of a woman who has become a lost cause to society’s traditional routes of grief and has begun to look for solace in all the wrong places. As she begins to dig a deeper and deeper hole for herself she finds that rock bottom is sometimes an illusion for a tunnel that goes straight through the earth, to the other side of light. It is a sexual film that requires full and partial nudity from the two main women characters.
