  • An off-beat portrait of a young woman who speaks to you about the evolution of her lesbian identity, her first relationship, homophobia and grief. Her monologue is candid and often humorous, a ritual in itself, as it weaves in and out of a ritual journey of a more mysterious nature.

    This young woman reveals her story / herself to the viewer in a series of direct camera addresses which make the film inescapably personal. Since she addresses experiences that we all share - namely, love and grief, she disarms the viewer with a quiet power which demands that we examine our own homophobia.
