“Takal coaxes melodrama from first-person naturalism and smartly blends the allure of genre with do-it-yourself intimacy.” – Richard Brody, The New Yorker
Genevieve, a New York intellectual, moves to the country with her self-involved journalist boyfriend, Sebastian, while he works on his latest project about sustainable farming. Bored and neglected, Genevieve turns to Robin, a working class local, for companionship. When Sebastian forms a bond of his own with Robin, Genevieve finds herself overpowered by jealousy and insecurity. Tensions mount between the two women and soon reality and jealous fantasy become inseparable in this haunting meditation on the female psyche.
