That Stays There

That Stays There explores the relentlessness of mundanity through the eyes of two women, one trapped in her body, the other trapped in her mind. Gripped by formless fears and irrational phobias, 59-year-old Ann struggles to care for her elderly mother Sophie. Fighting off depression and the endlessness of her days, Ann decides that today is the day the two of them will finally venture out of the house and visit her family, who Ann has been afraid to face. The two never make it.
