I Dream Before I Take the Stand
In a courtroom, a woman takes the stand and is cross examined by a very clever and highly manipulative defence lawyer. In the world of western justice where an alleged criminal is innocent until proven guilty; the accuser is guilty until proven innocent… What we witness as a result is pithy, poignant, surprising, appalling, brutal, funny and altogether unbelievably believable. This is for any woman – or any person, taking a walk in the park.
Rebecca and Paul are running away. Away from memories and mistakes. They're trying to save their relationship. They need time and space.

Especially when you're being followed.
