Two sisters travel up to Pacific Coast to seek an alternative treatment for the younger sister's misterious disease.
Written by proven duo Drew Grubich and Nickolas Duarte, fresh authors of the award-winning Fish Hook, Sea Change is a slowburner with high emotional values and storytelling competence. A roadmovie speaking of transformation and acceptance through the story of two sisters traveling in Northern California in the desperate search for a cure for the mysterious disease that afflicts the younger.
Sharp crystals protrude from her body, tearing her flesh apart with painful bleeding. What is it about? The film doesn’t reveal it, but it does not matter. It is a narrative makeshift, an imaginary adverse situation that serves as “obstacle” that force the girls to deal with each other’s weaknesses and strenghts, to take care of each other, and finally, not to lose heart when they will discover the bitter truth.
Sea Change, shot in just 5 days with a Red Scarlet camera to achieve a more natural tone with the feel of a tightly constructed documentary, is a film that speaks of the sacrifices we are willing to do to help those we love, the ability to accept what we cannot change, but also the courage and audacity to find the “silver linings” in every dark moments. It is a also a film that succedes in esploring the intensity and power of family bindigs, in this case, the devotion and understanding, often unspoken, that can exist between two sisters.
