Craving that girl she was never able to replace and seeking inspiration in her presence, or absence, or rather fantasy, a troubled writer embarks on a stormy journey of love, passion and potentially perdition.
Follows the troubled journey of Anna, a tormented aspiring writer and a bit of a fish out of water in contemporary London. Unable to get over the only girl she ever loved (Robyn), Anna starts trying to get creative inspiration from her longing for the lost love. Over a span of months, and cross-cutting between different time periods, the two girls share passionate, dreamlike adventures in London, Paris and South Italy. As the film progresses, the conflict within the relationship, as well as the deeply rooted inner conflict Anna is experiencing, will become increasingly more apparent and we will be able to reconstruct the past events that led Anna to the place she is finding herself in right now, in a crazy downwards spiral of occurrences.

But then again, I guess it had to be expected given the operation made in order to bring this film to life and the fact there were never any limits to how far I was willing to go or how much I was willing to sacrifice. Using my friend's words, Sam (also featured in the film), the result should be brilliant and pathetic!" See more »

Maybe, at the end of the day the thought of that is not that scary." And then looked at yourself from the outside and thought: "This cannot be my life!". You try and make sense out of ...
