‘The Melancholic Wife loved to dance…..she danced to cope with the dark and troubled thoughts that lived in her mind’. Take a journey through the inner world of the Melancholic Wife as she struggles against the manifestations of her own personal darkness. Adapted from an original short comic story, this film attempts to convey the everyday, personal glory we carry through the unromantic walls of our real lives. And portray the power of self expression as a means to thrive, grow and survive.
