Synopsis
In a shopping centre, two young women are being followed by a cannibal. The victims become the aggressors, the banal turns into the fantastic. Possibly in Michigan swings from horror to humour, sexuality and violence. Cecilia Condit’s feminist fairy tales give a subversive turn to traditional myths and female representation.
