Soon after the 2016 U.S. election, an anti-Trump activist waits outside a supporter’s home considering something that could result in deadly consequences.
Relax is a film about the desperation of feeling unheard or dismissed. The film explores how these feelings, now overwhelming in our political lives, can cause out-of-control situations in which everyone loses. The film leaves the audience in the same situation as the characters within the narrative; unfulfilled, with no closure on the intense divisive situation they just experienced. Yet, they still have to learn to live with one another.
