Anna works as a cashier at a local supermarket, sleeps alone in a noisy apartment complex, and drifts through her daily routine. The one thing that makes her feel alive is a potent version of Pop Rocks that sends its user into a dreamlike, hallucinogenic state.
.First time director Rinio Dragasaki crafts surreal atmospheres that alternate gracefully between a somber reality and a mind-bending space of childlike imagination. A sweet comedy elevated by fantastical bursts of color and sound, it’s also a tale of female friendship and maternal bonding featuring a very catchy song about French toast.
