Preceded by the short film Burp

Hunter lives an idyllic lifestyle, tucked away in a glass house she shares with her husband in upstate New York. She spends her days performing mindless chores—picking leaves out from the pool, cooking dinner for her husband, and playing iPhone games. Things take an abrupt turn, however, when Hunter discovers she’s pregnant and develops pica, a compulsion to consume foreign and dangerous objects. As the severity of her condition worsens, questions of bodily autonomy and control begin to consume Hunter. This suspenseful drama unconventionally tackles questions of the expectations of women and the fight to regain ownership of one’s life. Introduction by Chandler Ferrebee (VAFF)
