Tweetable Logline:
A girl comes to see her shrink in the middle of the night to confess the murder of her family. But in a good way.
Elevator Pitch:
LILY, 24, has had a very hard day. She goes to her therapist after
hours for an emergency session to explain the deaths of her disowning
father, her pill addict mother, her conscious-less sister and her
perverted brother. Lily’s therapist isn’t home. Her teenage, judgmental,
insensitive daughter is. When all she wants to do is confess, Lily
finds herself in a battle with the therapist’s daughter over the
therapist’s attention.
Production Team:
Writer / Director – Veronica Kedar (Israeli Film Academy Award Nominee)
Producer – Mosh Danon (“Ajami,” best foreign film oscar nominee)
About the Production:
“There’s no way to deal with a broken home, but laugh about it or
write it as bloody as possible. This film has been my vision for years,
and I just would like to get it out of my system already. This film puts
us on the side of a girl who must kill her family to be free. The only
way this young photgrapher can finally get the family picture she’s been
praying for, for years – is if she shoots them all dead first.” — Veronica Kedar
