(THIS FILM WAS PART OF OUR 2022 FESTIVAL LINEUP AND IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE ON THE SLAMDANCE CHANNEL) Behind an obsessively controlled environment, Amara, a Black Deaf woman, buries the pain of childhood abuse by her father. Her avoidance has created a protective persona, Sade - a free-spirited being who takes over when things become too much. Isolated and faced with the prospect of seeing her father again, Sade resurfaces to taste the freedom of living. As Sade tears down her carefully constructed world, Amara has to confront her alter-ego and the trauma she has hidden. Can Amara keep control of her life? Will she finally be free of the pain or will Sade take over forever?
