Sparked by a break-up with her married boyfriend, Justine trades in college to live abroad, and descends into a destructive reinvention with a backdrop of international cities.
Acutely aware that she's not the first girl to experience these formative misadventures, Justine hijacks the vocal chords of archetypal characters from myths, fairy tales, literature, and pop culture such as Medusa, Rapunzel, and Catherine (of Brontë's "Wuthering Heights").
She echoes the voices that display her story--the violent exit from girlhood via a botched love life--better than her own.
PRETTY GIRLS MAKE GRAVES is a dark and stylized examination of the vicious things we do in the name of self-preservation, and questions the frantic necessity to tell our stories to establish human connection-however ugly they may be.
