Cecilia Kass knows what it’s like to have a psychopath for a boyfriend. Her ex, Adrian Griffin, had been controlling, manipulative and violent even after the breakup.

When Adrian commits suicide not long after, he leaves Cecilia a huge inheritance totaling several million dollars. The only condition? She must never be diagnosed as mentally incompetent. It seemed like Adrian’s request was nothing more than another sign of his severe mental health problems.

Yet, as Cecilia attempts to rebuild her life, she starts to experience strange occurrences that make her question whether the scientific genius had simply found a more diabolical way to torment her.

Rated R for some strong bloody violence, and language.

When his father leaves to take a dangerous job fighting wildfires, Joe realizes his parent’s marriage is failing.

Set in the 1950’s, Joe tries to understand the intimate dynamics of marriage while both parents offer vague answers to his questions about the fate of their little family.

The metaphor of a forest fire and dissolving marriage is the back drop for a drama about feeling betrayed, yearning for freedom and living through uncertainty.

Rated PG-13 for thematic material including a sexual situation, brief strong language, and smoking.
