SYNOPSIS

Two woman connect over the magic and mystery of a bottomless pit in this short folk horror film allegorizing the terrors of poverty in America.

DIRECTOR STATEMENT
I hope this fairy tale breaks the rules.
I hope it's too scary for the fantasy crowd.
I hope it's too whimsical for the horror crowd.
I hope it's something no one's seen before.
I hope it entertains.
I hope the monster of destitution terrifies.
I hope empathy for those less fortunate flourishes.
The beast is real.
