Liz is an island… allegedly. She’s a young woman in New York City who is prepared to do whatever she needs to to survive. She doesn’t look back often. She would tell you she doesn’t look back because there’s nothing to look at but you’d sense the tone with which she’d say it. One morning Liz finds herself at the confluence of the East and Harlem Rivers and confronted by someone she hurt on her travels. As the sun travels across the sky and the rivers flow south Liz finds herself in a painful conversation about the decisions she’s made and the people she’s caused pain while marching forward without looking back. Bolt Cutters is a piercing look at what happens when we are confronted with the mistakes of our past.
