About this submission

It's Thanksgiving day, 1977. In an upscale suburban neighborhood outside of New York City, a young woman has just crashed her car into a tree. She knocks on the door of 772 Beachwood Street to ask if she may use their phone to call a tow truck. However, her unannounced arrival has other motivations. In the time it takes her hosts to finish a cocktail, this young woman has altered all of their lives completely.
