A Sweetness of Lapse

Milwaukee Film Festival

As their summer break trickles to an end, best friends Ava & Mina spend their days writing poems, smoking joints and dancing to house music. When they are introduced to the internet phenomenon of “reality shifting”, they decide to try it one night. The next morning, Mina wakes up to Ava missing and a flood of memories of her illness and untimely death. Now, she needs to rethink her methods and “shift” back to the reality where her friend is alive.
