  • A young woman’s disillusionment over her social life and inability to find meaningful work becomes the background for a poetic rumination on economic precarity and cinematic construction. Residing on the borders between documentary, narrative and experimental film and largely taking place on a small island off the coast of British Columbia, the film calls up the sublime images of 19th century landscape painting. But when the reality of the young woman’s life disrupts the artifice of the romantic images, the film’s structure gives way, splitting in two.
