At the opening of scab, Anima has hit rock bottom. an intoxicating drama queen, she is immobolized by the death of her father. Christa, her new roommate, is a straight laced academic studying the women of the Belle Epoque. These unlikely heroines are drawn together into a unique and intense friendship that profoundly affects their lives. With a talking Virgin Mary lawn ornament, a bloodthirsty plant, a three-headed academic monster, and a mom stuck in a 1950's sitcom (via video projection), a simple love story is turned into a macabre comic strip of splashy color and gritty subtext. Ultimately, this unconventional dark comedy is a story of how love and wisdom can rise out of grief and darkness.
