Grief takes all forms, and for Aubrey Parker the debilitating process has only just begun. Her best friend, Grace, has just passed, and the pain feels insurmountable. After confining herself to Grace’s apartment, trapped in a haze of heartache, Aubrey begins communicating with a mysterious voice on the other end of a CB radio left on Grace’s nightstand. The radio’s powerful signal, she learns, is the only way to deter the horrific creature outside, who is relentlessly bashing itself against the apartment window. Aubrey fears this persistent beast and falls in and out of terrifying dreams, unable to separate her nightmares from reality. Stricken with immense sadness, Aubrey must find it within herself to search for a series of mix tapes Grace carefully left behind in order to save the world from this deadly threat. Set to an eclectic indie soundtrack, STARFISH portrays visceral emotion through dramatic imagery, providing a raw glimpse into the depths of grief and healing. —A.B.
