A richly layered work with a sharp focus on our obsession with beauty and all the ways that communication and truth can fail us. When Greg makes an off-handed remark about his girlfriend Steph, it sets off a firestorm on his tight-knit social circle. What we witness is one man’s journey of moral education as Greg, reeling and dumbfounded by Stephanie’s outburst, seeks the reasons for its cause.
