Lina and Holly are roommates and best friends. So close that their respective relationships with Craig and Mark pale in comparison. But Lina has a secret, and Holly’s moving out. The strain of codependency takes its toll over the course of a year, and no one escapes unscathed. Responsibilities towards one another are questioned. Violence bubbles to the surface in answer to the griefs held too deep too long. Ties will be severed, with uncertainty surrounding their ability to ever connect again.
This Year asks us how tightly we’d cling to our emotional armor, even when it’s weighing us down. It asks us how far we’d go for a friend who does everything to push us away. It asks us if we are willing to take one small step out of the darkness and into the light.
