The universe is full of weird and wonderful things – but Rommy’s life isn’t one of them.
His writing career has failed to launch, his relationship with his girlfriend Mary is dying around him, and a life of cynicism and disappointment has led to alcohol dependency – not to mention the strange cop keeping tabs on him. When Rommy (Dean Kirkright) begins to suspect that Mary (Lauren Gregory) is having an affair, something snaps.


That’s when a mysterious houseguest, calling herself “The Green Woman” (Christine Husband) begins to appear. Fascinating, beautiful, and fun: she is everything Rommy is missing in life, and all she asks in return for her attention is for Rommy to do exactly as she asks.


The tasks start small, and Rommy is ensnared by his new enigmatic friend, but as his bond with the Green Woman deepens, and as the distance between he and Mary grows, her requests get stranger and stranger… What is she up to? Where did she come from? Why has she chosen Rommy?
Who is The Green Woman?

I chose to direct this film as I wanted to create an exploration of the dark places our minds go while twisted by loneliness and loss. Having experienced some harsh troubles myself I wanted the audience to explore what it could be like if a person fully embraced their pain and what could happen when the most unlikely and unusual of things, a green woman's arrival, could do to a person's psyche. I shot this film on a very tight schedule as to give the very visual effect on the main actor and to allow his physical state to truly reflect the protagonist’s mind. I wanted the audience to truly get a feel in their core about what a long term mental illness can be like to a person cut off from their world. To do this I focused on the everyday and turned it into a symbol for his own prison.
