Worlds will collide when Renata and Frieda’s erotic fantasies cross the digital frontier.

Slashed from Wide Angle Tasmania on Vimeo.

 

As Renata, medical receptionist and Star Police tv show enthusiast, writes an alternative ending to a dramatic showdown between tired space cop, Draker and his nemesis Thrax, a real life showdown is happening between herself and Frieda, a dubious patient in the doctor’s surgery. But do Renata and Frieda have more in common than they realise? And have Draker and Thrax’s many years as adversaries brought them only closer together?
