Dissection

DIssection-27

Maggie and Jennifer have just gone through a terrible break-up. Not convinced that Jennifer ever loved her in the first place, Maggie begins dissecting their relationship. She extracts one memory after another from Jennifer, searching for something that can convince her their love was true, or if it was a lie all along. A dramatization of the painful self-examination–and sometimes self-flagellation–that occurs after love turns sour.
