Shot on location in NYC, Fish Hook is a look at the nebulous morality and internal conflict abuse spawns. Written after posing honest, direct, and dark questions: What would lead you to actual violence? To seek out and purposefully harm another human? At what tension is your line broken? Could you face a former abuser who now threatens your family? Through minimalist dialogue and sparse shots focusing on negative space, a multilayered emotional battle is played out in one young man’s mind that ultimately leads to an act of both savage retribution and primal protection.
