The 8min short film focuses on writer/director/star Frankie Shaw as Bridgette Bird, a single mom of a young son. After being alarmed by an online article detailing how the bodies of new moms change, she hits up Dan (Thomas Middleditch), an old romantic partner, and propositions him into sex, which doesn’t go quite as planned. The encounter is awkward is a given, but what isn’t is how Shaw, in a natural way, through sharp dialogue and thoughtful direction, builds an engaging character; a woman struggling with her self-image, fiercely maternal, yet barely hanging on, as she finds her sense of self dissolving into the demands of motherhood.
