Isolated in an empty house on the Pacific Northwest coast, Ian remains mired in grief and shame over the loss of Liv, a woman he loved dearly, who died some years prior. Ian’s reality becomes increasingly haunted by visions and fantasies, and the only person who identifies the extent of his spiral is Liv’s surviving sister, Beth. With the memory of Liv clamoring to be released, and his daily existence turning ever darker, Ian will have to find a way to let her go, even if it kills him.
NYCITFF runs in person at New Ohio Theatre from February 16 -19, followed by an encore online presentation from February 20 – 26. Feature-length films, short films, filmmaker Q&As, and panels with industry professionals will be presented.
