Blaise and Nessa are outcast methadone users in their small town. Each day they push a rusty lawnmower door-to-door begging to cut grass. Nessa plots an escape, while Blaise lingers closer to collapse. Tethered to one another, their getaway dreams are kept on a suffocatingly short leash. Read our review from the 2016 Atlantic Film Festival.
Ashley McKenzie will be present to introduce the screening and for a Q&A afterwards.
