Small Life (Short Film)
From Pete Valente
Em's sanity unravels, as her relationship with Angie falls apart.
Em and Angie's relationship is reaching crises point. They share a flat. Em is the introvert of the pair, while Angie is narcissistic and self-absorbed. They live lives of urban obscurity. They were happy once, but their inner doubts and conflicts over their identities are beginning to eat away at them, and Em now suspects Angie of betraying her.
The film follows the two in the course of an ordinary day - which begins with the women waking together - and ends with the pair finally apart, Em caught between desire and repulsion; Angie, between passion and contempt.
