DescriptionIn a feast of vivid images and interrelated stories, this mildly surreal film revolves around three women representing different aspects of one character - The Investigator, The Hothead and The Dreamer. Each has her own quest, each moves through her separate but interconnected world set against a background of villainous male extras. The film is about internal and external states of emergency, about personal and collective 'shadows' (pasts, memories and conditioned stereotypes), about resistance and spirit.
