DescriptionA sun-drenched, magical portrayal of epilepsy and love that illustrates the relationship between the carer and the cared for. Focusing on two parallel lesbian relationships this film reflects the reality of living with an 'invisible' disability, challenging preconceived notions of the illness to reveal how it operates outside the epileptic fit on a daily basis. It is a poetic interpretation constructed from elements whose very nature is one of duality and contrast. It plays with the emotive and physical, not just in the immediate terms of the illness but across the boundaries of sexuality, desire, dependence, love, loss and life itself. The whole is a deeply sensual and visually beautiful work with an underlying edge of unease and instability.
