abby & emily
go to palm springs
Two women try not to kill each other on their first vacation together, aka a modern queer love story.
Abby is an artist and Emily is an army officer; they come from opposite worlds yet have fallen hard and fast for each other and must navigate their completely different love languages on the way to what could be forever or the end of the road.
In the tradition of John Cassavetes, Wong Kar-wai and Jane Campion, this short film takes a brief glimpse into the lives of two people in love trying to understand each other.
