The script written by Ralitza Petrova focuses on a 40-something prison rehabilitation officer. “А control addict, with a phobia of commitment, her defenses are suddenly shaken when she becomes the heir to her estranged father’s debts. Refusing to do anything with a stranger, she is ready to dodge the law, so she can go back to her life as soon as possible. But a startling out-of-body experience makes her unable to leave, sending her on a journey of self-discovery, where she must confront the truth behind her inability to accept love”, Petrova told FNE.
“With Lust, I am interested in exploring a crisis point in someone’s own fight with their life story. The types of stories we tell ourselves, for a lifetime sometimes, so we feel safe about who we think we are. I want to see the characters as by-products of an egocentric 21st century, ruled by ‘what’s in it for me?’, whose traumas, ironically, hold the keys to their growth”, Petrova added.
