An unexpected admission emerges while a couple is making love. Naked, emotionally and physically, they must confront a tangled web of love, sex and betrayal. The path to reconciliation leads to a dark and uncertain forgiveness.
The short film, "Leave You In Me", opens with a devastating admission at a moment of great intimacy. After the initial anger softens into exhaustion, Steven and Fiona begin the fight after the fight. Still naked and in bed, they challenge one another's easy rationalizations and expose the false idealism at the heart of love (and betrayal). As night becomes a new morning, the couple faces an inevitable crossroads: to leave each other or to forgive. What happens next is so destructive it might just save them.
