In this cinematic poem, IAN (Chris Stack) lives alone in a house on the edge of Puget Sound, grappling with long-held grief and shame over the loss of LIV (Samantha Soule), a woman he loved dearly who died nearly two decades ago. As he moves though the world he’s created withvisions and fantasies of their life together, he’s pulled further and further away from the present. Liv’s sister BETH (Merritt Wever), a woman with ghosts of her own, is the first to see how far Ian has slipped away from reality. Their chance run-in begins a spiral which ultimately forces Ian to choose…lose himself completely or turn towards healing.
