Content Warning: Scenes of Sexual Violence
WEDNESDAY MAY 25
ToY is the story of a young, wealthy, talented, but naive artist named Chloe. She inherited not only her late mother’s wealth, but also the thing that took her mother’s life, which she’s desperate to keep secret. Chloe’s newest work leads her to Kat, a beautiful but aging call girl. As Kat’s career options grow more desperate, and as Chloe fights her own demons, the two women grasp on to each other, offering one another second chances while trying to escape their inevitable decline. ToY shows how sex is given and taken and bought and sold, out of love, lust, pain and desperation, and often just to survive.
Briana Evigan and Kerry Norton give stunning, heartbreaking performances as the spiraling couple. Evigan broke out as the lead in “Step Up 2: The Streets” and is currently featured in Robert Rodriguez’s series “From Dusk Til’ Dawn”. Kerry Norton has appeared in a dozen productions, including a recurring role in the critically-acclaimed reboot of “Battlestar Galactica”.
