A f ilm by Frank Mosley

“FROM NOW ON, FORGET HAPPINESS.

NOW IT’S JUST ABOUT

SAVING THE REMAINS,

THE WRECKAGE,

THE APPEARANCE.

- Henrik Ibsen, “A Doll’s House”

SYNOPSIS

Loosely inspired by Ibsen's "A Doll's House", the film is a mercurial narrative about the reunion of two old friends.  By turns mysterious and shocking, SPIDER VEINS is an investigation into varying levels of everyday artifice.
