Lilith (Misty Mundae) wants nothing more than a perfect life, which
means a successful husband who is able to satisfy her, and of course a
baby. Unfortunately her real life husband Jim (Ronnie Kerr) is an
alcoholic, unemployed loser who can't get it up - and thus no children, no
Then a new couple moves in next door from Lilith, Aisha (Erika Smith)
and Sam (Nikos Psarras), and they are everything Lilith always wanted to
be, have successful careers, great sex (loud enough for Lilith to hear it

totally identifies with her, and when Aisha tells her she's pregnant, she
automatically thinks she's pregnant as well - and won't even believe her

totally loses touch with reality, starts threatening people at her work
with a gun, pushes her hubby Jim off a balcony to his death, and pays
Aisha a visit, to cut the unborn baby out of her belly ...
10 years later: Lilith and Sam have brought up Daisy - the name of
Aisha's unborn baby - and Lilith is pregnant with another child ... but of
course, the question remains, how much of this is real, how much is just
Lilith's imagination of a perfect life ?

shake the feeling that Marsiglia desperately tries to imitate David Lynch
instead of finding his own cinematic language - and imitating other
directors is never a good idea, especially those with such personal
visions as Lynch.
Still, the film is not all bad either, it's a bizarre, twisted piece of
what one could label as art-horror, and it features a stunning performance
by Misty Mundae (who spends most - not all - of the film all dressed by
