Synopsis:

An unconventional and beautifully structured meditation about eating
disorders, hunger and desire, our need for identity, and control.

“Tammy Ballaban wants to leave her mark, to be remembered, to stay safe. So
she stops eating. An unconventional and beautifully conceived exploration of
eating disorders, hunger, desire and our need for identity and control. A
sumptuous collage of images and sound reflects the amorphous dialectic
between conscious and unconscious drives...” Lynne Fernie for Hot Docs
