Director’s Vision

The inspiration for this film began with the pandemic. The desire to create something last spring when the world shut down and the prospects of work seemed unknown. I wanted to make something meaningful but safe, with minimal resources and crew. Luckily I had access to a beautiful location and was inspired to write an emotionally messy story that would be juxtaposed with the meticulously maintained environment. The theme of betrayal is one that I think everyone can identify with. For an added challenge, I decided to have our actor (Juno Temple) play both roles- our protagonist on screen and her foil on the phone. I hope this opens up the film to further interpretation. Did this conversation really happen? I’ll let you decide.
