Movie Summary

Director:
Sarah Watt
Released:
2005
Rating:
PG-13
Meryl (Justine Clarke), a lonely artist, literally envisions disaster around every corner. Through "bursts of painterly, jewel-toned animation," (The New York Times) Meryl's whimsically mordant daydream shark attacks, train wrecks and bridge collapses follow her everywhere. Nick (William McInnes) is a photojournalist whose work keeps him emotionally distanced from the tragedies he documents. When Meryl and Nick meet in the aftermath of a real train accident, their lives, and the lives of a handful of other witnesses and victims, are revealed and transformed.
