Film Pulse: In Conversation


When playwright Claire is invited to set her latest work at a rural theatre company, her fiance Monica tags along for a much-needed vacation.

Upon encountering Mutty, an enigmatic groundskeeper with a gross lack of boundaries, Monica's hopes for respite, her future with Claire, and her very sanity are thrown into jeopardy.

A film tumult of social malaise and toxic love.
