Agatha is in a domestic quagmire and a crumbling love story as a mother-of-two and wife to angry wolf-man, Robert. One night, she is visited by the Black Madonna who sends Agatha on a journey through a portal in her dishwasher into the forest of her childhood. Here, her child-self reminds her of forgotten joy and innocence, but also of the tragedy that underlies her grief. Agatha must accept what happened, to transform her present and embrace a better future. Live-action and animation intersect to illustrate Agatha’s journey, for this HIVE Fund-supported half-hour film for ABC Arts.
