Filmed over ten years, this is the story of Alice, an unloved girl trapped in a young mother’s life. At 16, she falls in love with Dorian, 35 years her senior. Although she marries him and has their son, Aristo, the familiar echoes of her own neglected childhood resurface. In a family dynamic in which she is forced to become the sole provider, Alice resorts to live-chat sex work and puts aside her artistic aspirations, while battling her addiction. An unflinching portrait of transgenerational trauma, as Alice struggles to be present in Aristo’s life, follow her dreams, and find herself.

At this moment, we do not have any future performances scheduled.
