Private Project


Fiona, a cautious yet brave young woman, hears of the possible overturning of Roe V. Wade and decides to get a Copper IUD as a pre-emptive protective measure. However, after the Copper IUD is inserted, it takes its form as Damim, a domineering woman, looking to control Fiona from within, causing excessive bleeding and sing-songy nightmares. Think: Little Shop of Horrors.

Director Statement

When I began writing this script, I could not have foreseen that Roe V. Wade would be overturned by the Supreme Court. It was while writing and going into pre-production that we all caught wind of the rumors and the ultimate decision to fail to recognize women's rights to bodily autonomy on a national level. It was then that my film began to take shape as I grieved for all of the women and young girls that now do not have access to safe and secure abortions. My protagonist decides to get an IUD as a preventative measure but soon finds out that it is incompatible with her body. What it all boils down to is that this legislation has forced people into unprecedented circumstances to make impossible choices.
