Auckland, NZ
Listed by View details

Two lovers talk frankly about their experiences with depression. Set against a looming dark landscape.

Laura and Benny are two lovers besieged with affection for each other - waking up Laura finds Benny plying kisses all over her body. Laura however is in a rush to leave making Benny alone in the batch tucked far away from anywhere. Benny immediately downs some pills with hard liquor.

We crash cut to Benny drowning underwater, surprised at first, she lets go and accepts the situation. Laura however coming home early finds Benny, plucking her up from the outside bathtub. It’s here the conversations begin….

The dialogue flows from Benny’s attempted suicide to Laura’s feelings about the landscape around them. Feelings and emotions run the gamut. Eventually Laura breaks away from the conversation, retreating to a beach down the road. The next day the conversation continues. Laura tells a story of a previous lover who killed herself and why she retreated away to this isolated location, while Benny admits she doesn’t think she’ll make it out alive. The film ends with this admission from Benny which gives a lack of hope.

The last shot of the film is Laura and Benny walking down the beach which is spoken about by Laura as a place that eats up people, Laura admits she heard a lot of people died here and that she wished to be swept away. As Benny reaches out for Laura’s hand we offer the audience some hope as to their futures.

Estimated time required: 2 days.
