Butter on the latch

“Thrives on its casually true snapshots of confusion and connection”



“An utter exhilaration of cinematic imagination, a pure high of invention”


“A sexy, wild romp you have to see to believe”


“A bold, unsettling film”


“I was putty in Decker’s hands... ”​


“Teeming, roiling energy...marvels of image and imagination”​


“Every image and sound has the impulsive energy of a creation wrenched from a void into which she would leap again joyfully”​

At a Balkan folk song and dance camp in the woods of Mendocino, California, Sarah reunites with her old friend Isolde and with a song she learned years before about dragons who entwine themselves in women's hair and carry them off through the forest, burning it as they go. When Sarah pursues a romance with a new camper Steph, the nights of sensual secrets and singing with Isolde come to an abrupt end. Sarah and Steph explore a simple attraction, but in Sarah's dreams, women spin their wild hair and Isolde darkly approaches. When reality and fantasy collide, Sarah finds that the dragons she's visioning may be inside her.
