Director Statement

In this female driven story, Annie & Louise, a kind of composite "everywoman," have each been in & out of relationships & are very aware of the ticking clock. Louise says, ”We blink Annie, we just blink and everything changes.” Annie’s tendency for empathy has habitually gotten her into hot water while Louise asserts, “it’s not about sex, it’s about power,” as she searches for some new, unknown pathway through the relationship minefield. Making the women opposites gave the widest latitude to explore their struggle. Ricky is the catalyst that compels that exploration. What they all have in common is the inability to truly understand themselves and the forces that drive them.
