a film by Em Watson
Only Place is a Narrative Dance Film about Sami, a young woman from New York with PTSD from a car crash she survived as a teenager. She returns to her home town of Sag Harbor years after the car accident while on vacation with her girlfriend, and is overwhelmed by memories and bodily experiences of the traumatic event.
