“Who is more trustworthy than a sister?”

Sex, lies and buried secrets permeate this darkly comic reworking of Ovid’s myth of Tereus, Procne and Philomela from the Metamorphoses.

When Marisa and Dan welcome Marisa’s estranged sister Edie into their home, their marriage is put to the test. Struggling to settle, Edie finds solace in her new lover Nathan. But as Dan’s attraction to Edie develops, a dark history between the two sisters begins to emerge.

“If you speak the truth, you never have to remember anything”

“With sibling rivalries, sexual tensions and an eye-averting rape scene, Eliza Power’s script, based on Ovid, shows an intelligent handling of the tale of two sisters’ doomed relationship with each other.” David Pollock, The Scotsman.
