This exploration of the emotional, complex landscape of troubled young love centers on Davina, an imaginative, strong-willed teenage girl with a beautifully twisted fantasy life. Having grown up quickly as the sole caretaker of her disabled mother, she looks for escape in a new relationship with an older boy. She’s quickly swept up into a whirlwind of romance and adventure, but Davina’s enchantment is shaken when her boyfriend’s volatile nature emerges. Official selection: SXSW Film Festival
