Palm Trees and Power Lines

Jamie Dack
USA
 - 2022

Seventeen year old Lea spends her summer break aimlessly tanning in her backyard with her best friend, tiptoeing around her needy mother, and getting stoned with a group of boys from school. This monotony is interrupted by a chance encounter with Tom, an older man who promises an alternative to Lea’s unsatisfying adolescent life. Quickly falling for his charismatic charm, Tom’s grip tightens on Lea, isolating her from those around her, but she soon comes to realise his intentions are not what they seem.
