_IVANS WIDOW:_ A widow struggles to differentiate between fantasy and reality. She seeks help from a psychiatrist, a cold predatory man, determined to make a breakthrough in her case.
_TALK TO ME LIKE THE RAIN AND LET ME LISTEN: _A couple find themselves in a cycle of deprivation. With ravaged appearances, the scene between them is one of eternal repetition, where emotions are worn out and the hopelessly unalterable is accepted.
_27 WAGONS FULL OF COTTON: _In desperate times, rules are different. Do two wrongs make a right? A dysfunctional relationship is at the centre of this disturbing look at abuse and how one woman may find her silver lining.
