SELKIE

American couple Keaton and Deanna, saddled with debt and buoyed by lust-driven optimism, move to a tropical island for a fresh start. When Deanna runs an illicit errand for her husband, Keaton kidnaps a selkie woman by stealing her seal coat. Deanna comes home to find Alondra, the Selkie, living with Keaton. A dark and saturated exploration of domestic violence – of being trapped – and two approaches to escape.
