Film of the Week

Emily and Philip are in a dysfunctional relationship. Philip struggles to stand up for himself because of Emily’s manipulative hold over him. One morning while enjoying his brunch Philip constructs a clever plan, which involves as much helium as courage, to dissociate himself from her.

The film was an official selection at NFFTY 2013 and screened as a part of the opening night gala.
