Resurrection or the Terrible Repercussions of Making Tangible the Intangible
Two years after graduating from college, Juan shows up at the doorstep of his could-have-been soul mate Lisa, only to find her barely recognizable and involved with Neil, the fiercely territorial, corrosive frontman of a death metal band who's determined to run Juan out. What begins as a friendly, weekend visit quickly spirals into a dark, twisted, life-changing series of events where each individual must ask at what point they can no longer affect change.
