37th Annual VIRGINIA FILM FESTIVAL October 30-November 3, 2024



Tired of mundane sessions with her clientele, therapist Sibyl drops multiple patients and pursues her dream of writing a novel. The life of an author doesn’t exactly fulfill her until she meets a new patient, Margot. With a muse and reignited passion for writing, Sibyl slowly grows closer to this struggling actress who needs more help than Sibyl may be prepared to offer. Justine Triet creates a medley of romance, drama, and comedy as Margot’s life unravels and Sibyl gets more intertwined in it. As these two women grapple with shifting work lives and personal lives, there’s no altering the truths of the past. Introduction by Iana Dontcheva (VAFF)
