Winner of the Narrative Feature Grand Jury Prize at the 29th Slamdance Film Festival 2023, Director Linh Tran’s debut feature is a generational character study of young adulthood focusing on the dynamics and relationships between them, captured in long, fluid takes.
Best friends since high school, Kim and Amy, who haven’t seen each other since Amy moved to the West Coast for graduate school, get together for a weekend vacation at a house on Lake Michigan, joined by friends and Kim’s boyfriend, Jay.
Born and raised in Vietnam director Linh Tran studied and is based in the United States. Her debut feature, produced as part of the Indie Studio Programme at the DePaul School of Cinematic Arts in Chicago, is a generational character study of young adulthood focusing on the dynamics and relationships between them, captured in long, fluid takes. The late winter setting accentuates feelings of unease, regret, anxiety and transition.
