Directed by David Cecsarini
A Milwaukee Premiere

Researcher Juliana Smithton is poised for a tremendous clinical breakthrough. As she presents her findings to colleagues at an upscale beach resort, though, she is distracted by an enigmatic young woman in a yellow bikini sitting among the business suits. Her world begins to unravel, as Juliana's sense of truth collides with fragmented memories and with family and peers she finds increasingly difficult to trust.White's psychological mystery grabs the audience and doesn't let go until its powerful, emotion-filled conclusion. ... like sweet bells jangled out of tune.

"... a haunting drama ... so cleverly constructed that the nature and depth of the problem isn't revealed until the last shattering scene." - Variety
