SYNOPSIS

Fifteen years after serving at Guantanamo Bay, Alice has medicated away her memories of Gitmo and nested with her husband and daughter in the Midwest. But when Bashir, a former Gitmo detainee, finds his way to Alice’s flower shop, his demands force Alice to reconcile their shared past, splintering the civilian life she’s so carefully arranged. Strong physicality contrasts lyrical language in this exploration of trauma, eroticism, and the blurry line between redemption and revenge.
