A shy film student begins finding her voice as an artist while navigating a turbulent courtship with a charismatic but untrustworthy man. She defies her protective mother and concerned friends as she slips deeper and deeper into an intense, emotionally fraught relationship which comes dangerously close to destroying her dreams.

"Hogg is a major filmmaker pointing herself in new directions -- the past and future simultaneously - and hashing out the places where memory tells the truth and where it only offers more romanticism, more lies." - Ty Burr, Boston Globe

"An extraordinary rumination on memory and privilege while also being one of the most incisive movies ever to directly address-in moral, philosophical and personal terms-what it means to be a filmmaker." -Oliver Jones, Observer
