A darkly comedic coming-of-age psychological thriller. Bree Brigola, mustache-obsessed, Pastafarian, and fraught with panic attacks, is left empty when her highly neurotic, down-and-out author/professor father commits suicide.

Her impulsive half-sister, Rio, takes this opportunity to run away to find her real mother, while discovering more about her father in this journey through his handwritten archives. Meanwhile, Bree tries to break out of her introverted shell and in return, is haunted by visits from her missing sister.

The shots were way too close for my liking and a post processing stabilizer would have helped a lot.

The acting needs some work but I like the story. It seems twisted and something that would leave you thinking.

I'd like to know more. Perhaps two concepts could lead to confusion of what the main story is. Is it about her sister or her father? And why should we care?

this was a bit hard to understand. I think it needs more development in the plot and possibly on the acting no offence. It seemed a little forced to me and I was struggling to grasp the main plot of the story while watching the trailer and had to rely on the synopsis to tell me what was going on. Keep working on it...
