Playing at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah is Concussion, the story of a bored lesbian wife who turns to prostitution.

Abby (played by Robin Weigert) is a 42-year-old mother of two who turns to lesbian prostitution after she is hit on the head with a ball. Her new occupation is a dangerous counterpoint to her stale, sexless marriage to another woman (Julie Fain Lawrence).

Abby beds women for money in a Manhattan loft. The escape, however, begins to threaten Abby's mental health and marriage.

Writer-director Stacie Passon, who is making her feature debut at Sundance, told the Los Angeles Times that the movie was not about prostitution but about life and living with the choices we make.

“It's impossible to know when you're 25 years old what marriage looks like when you're 40,” Passon said. “Marriage is hard. And things happen.”

She described her protagonist as “a starving person” and “someone who didn't know she was starving for a long time.”
