Set in the height of Summer in Sydney Australia, TANGLES AND KNOTS is a naturalistic short drama that follows a unique, intimate relationship between a mother and teenage daughter that is uncomfortable, toxic but also poignant. They act more like sisters or girlfriends together than parent and child. This relationship becomes threatened when the teenage daughter seeks to nd new, popular friends her age and her mother goes a little too far to feel included with the group.

As their relationship unravels throughout the night, the ultimate result of the tumultuous evening is much more sinister: raising questions about female sexuality and the universal threat of sexual violence felt by all women.
