You Know What I Have Nightmares About

Sisters, Sunny and Hannah, are living together. Sunny is aspiring actress and she’s preparing for her big play to premiere soon. While Hannah is preparing for job interview, she’s listening to the words of monologue that Sunny is preparing for her play. Hannah understands each word as she’s connecting it to her current mental state but she stays quiet. Hannah leaves and Sunny stays to rehearse. In next couple of scenes we follow them in daily routines: yoga class, preparing lunch, conversations before bed, in each of these situations we see that Hannah is isolated and silent which Sunny fails to notice as she is consumed with her job. Hannah is not physically alone but the care given to Hannah from her close ones is shallow and not strong enough for Hannah to beat her demons.

Director’s Vision

After reading a play by Don Nigro called “A Seascape With Sharks and Dancer” Tracy’s monologue stuck with me. I knew I really wanted to make a film that explores a relationship and isolation between two close individuals, how you can be alone even when you have someone physically next to you. The script was built of my own worst fears of losing someone that I love. A lot of the time we take people around us for granted, check on them and tell them you love them.
