One day after having diappeared for two years, Valeria, once she and Timucin, her husband had lived a thresome sexual relationship with visits them. Now she is a member of a cult group called "Umbrella of Love and Mind" run by leader Bruce. One night she attends their seminar with her husband by Valeria's invitation. Asuman and Rich, a couple who are their friends also join them. During the seminar Bruce invites her to the stage. They preach following their bodies and embracing their dreams, and she is chosen explicitly by Bruce to join their ranks. Why? For reasons she will wish she never knew.
The movie starts well with what looks like an engaging and strong story, then gradually fades to the point of just wanting it to end as soon as possible.
Technically the film was fine, as was the acting as far as I am concerned - the story and the way it was told are the problem. All of a sudden it goes from being a logical progression into some kind of disjointed mess of editing that throws the viewer out of it, then desperately tries to win them back.
One to miss and/or forget.
