  • The lines of reality and perception are beginning to blur in Brigitte’s world as she struggles to accept that the life and love she once knew is long lost. Coming to terms with the truth of her boyfriend Gabe’s death proves difficult as her minds own unwillingness to face reality holds her back
    in a limbo of delusion.

    Returning once again to the motel where her memories of their time together take form, her sheltered reality becomes a stage to keep those memories alive.

    As we see her hallucinations begin to falter, she struggles to maintain her imagination’s wild thoughts of bringing back her lost lover Gabe, and her world as she knows it quite literally comes crumbling down.

    This gritty, romantic drama explores themes of time and reality, and the harsh truths that become exposed when faced with a distorted perception of reality.
