THIS IS GETTING HARDER
Part of the Make Me series
"What kind of artist doesn't want to go to their own opening?"
On the day her newest exhibition opens, an exhausted thirtysomething painter hides in a box in her hotel room. In comes a young queer filmmaker, who attempts to rescue the artist's brand between her own unanswered phone calls. The two women flirt, fight, and try to figure out who they are, over the course of one life-changing night.
