Take My Breath Away

A Film by Gloria Endres de Oliveira

Synopsis

Young writer Ingrid St. Clair has just finished writing her debut novel, detailing her struggle with depression – but instead of a sense of relief, she is left with suffocating anxiety. The film follows her desperate quest for peace of mind.
