Synopsis

A pregnant woman ignores her sister’s pleading phone calls to visit their dying mother. She drinks and smokes heavily while she hides in a dodgy hotel. When the hotel staff seems to mirror the trauma she fled from, she decides it’s time to deal with the fact that she cannot cope with her past.
