Lucy is half naked, immobilised and tied to the bed; her boyfriend lies dead next to her. In the forced loneliness of her bedroom, thinking only of her deepest fears, she faces a purifying Odyssey that will allow her to stitch up the wound she has in her heart, while touching the essence of love. She is the image of a crucifixion permanently observed from the ground, underlining the nature of the human drama, humble, but with divine aspirations.
Around her, an empty, sunny countryside, pregnant with summer sultriness, hides a terrible secret which will break into Lucy’s claustrophobic bedroom/prison.
* sorry for poor quality, it was a century ago when cameras were simply too expensive to afford and overall quality was frozen at shitty 720 standard resolution. It was also my first feature film, self-produced with a ridicolous budget and many, many, many things to learn and to test.. one those total experiences that train up you as a director and an artist. Even this new ultra-shortened cut version was a challenge and a training process.
