TACKLING THE UGLINESS OF LOVE WITH AN AUDIENCE IN TOW

Love You & Leave You (Dead)

Mandy is in love. She knows if anything was to happen to Cal, she wouldn’t be able to live with the pain. Or maybe she could, if she’s the one to kill him.

In an effort to control the unbearable pain of losing a loved one, Mandy decides to be the one to kickstart the grieving process and instigate the loss herself—by killing her boyfriend Cal.

When Cal comes home from the hospital after suffering from a nearly-exploded appendix, Mandy is forced to question the mortality of her boyfriend. She considers the undeniable eventuality that one day, he might unwillingly leave her through his own death.


With a few weeks bedrest on the cards, babysitting Cal becomes dominated by an internal struggle: Wouldn’t the pain of loss be so much easier to survive if she knew it was coming? If she was prepared for it?
