Brilliant Traces takes the audience on an unforgettable emotional journey.

In a remote cabin in the wilds of Alaska a lonely figure lies sleeping under a heap of blankets as a blizzard rages outside. Suddenly, a distraught young woman who has fled her impending marriage, bursts into the cabin dressed in full bridal regalia. Thrown together in the confines of the snowbound cabin, these two strangers share their reasons for fleeing the world they knew only to find the desperation and longing they both have in common. As they dig through each others lives what unfolds is a deep, thought-provoking, and often painful look into what separates us and ultimately what brings us together.

Through incisive dialogue, humor, and heartache Brilliant Traces is a riveting portrait of the human condition that will stay with you long after you leave the theater.
