Large woodshock ver2

When her mother dies a 35-year-old woman (Kirsten Dunst) plunges deeper and deeper into paranoia and fear. To cope with the bereavement and feelings of guilt, she starts using a powerful cannabinoid drug.

With a beautiful eye for detail, fashion siblings Mulleavy, who also designed the costumes for their film, record how the grieving woman”s sense of reality is undermined by the drug and how her already fragile emotional state disintegrates further. Slowly sinking into a trance, she is forced to confront her own isolation and sorrow.
