Synopsis

Adapted from the critically-acclaimed play by tour-de-force author Tom Walmsley, Blood tells the story of reuniting siblings Noelle and Chris. Noelle, a sometimes prostitute aching for a fix after three months of parole-enforced abstinence, is desperate for cash. Noelle's money-making plan for turning a kinky threesome trick changes when her usual partners are busy and her long-lost brother Chris returns. What follows is a hypnotic dance of blurred moralities and incestuous explorations. For 90 real-time minutes the siblings push each other through often violent examinations of lusts and weaknesses spanning drugs, love, death and power. They trade control and fantasies in a debate between destroying and reconciling with the other. By experimenting with the many manifestations of love, the result is a blunt, passionate, and darkly comic look at two people struggling for salvation.
