The Girl in the Straw Hat
Tommy and Katherine, a young couple on the rocks, travel to a New Age institute on Long Island hoping it’ll help with Tommy’s fragile mental state. While Katherine is immediately skeptical, Tommy soon finds himself roped into a dark, cosmic mystery that may transcend time and space itself. Encouraged by the enigmatic head of the institute, Tommy becomes obsessed with someone he believes may be the key to unlocking both his past and his future.
An ode to the 70’s psychodrama, this dark (and darkly funny) genre-bender begins in the mundane trenches of a stale relationship and steadily descends down a nightmarish path of deception, manipulation, and obsession.
