Mark Jackson’s and Jessica Dimmock’s debut feature film, Without, may be a new fascinating turn for independent American cinema. The synopsis from the official site is as follows:

“Without is set on a remote wooded island. Here, a young woman, Joslyn, becomes caretaker to an old man trapped in a wheelchair and in a vegetative state. She has no cell signal, no access to the Internet and is only a year removed from high school. Processing a hefty personal grief, Joslyn vacillates between finding solace in the old man’s company and feeling fear and suspicion towards him. As the days wear on, her isolated routine devolves into a struggle with sexuality, guilt and loss.”
