In Troy, New York, two women, both named Helen, carry on seemingly complacent existences with their respective partners. Middle-aged Helen lives with husband Roy and finds comfort from a "reborn" baby doll. Meanwhile, successful young artist Helen is expecting a child with her noncommittal partner. Foreboding signs begin to appear: a meteor reportedly crashes nearby; people go missing; and inexplicable, life-altering changes spiral the Helens’ inert realities into a terrifying journey through unknown terrain.

Writing/directing partners Rania Attieh and Daniel Garcia show remarkable ingenuity in crafting a disturbingly phenomenal world grounded in the fears of reality where subconscious tensions collide with the tempestuous forces of nature. Insanely creative, ambitious, and enigmatic, this spellbinding odyssey also makes an astoundingly perceptive and soulful observation about humans’ irresistible fixation on doom and beauty. —C.D.
