Genre: dark comedy
Keyword: marriage, trust, insanity, infidelity, murder, love
Synopsis: Passion and sex share so many similarities to food. We find ourselves starving for affection, or hungry for love. Eddie is a man with a lot of passion and a lot of voices in his head. His voices have taken physical form in the BAGHEADS. The BAGHEADS are two men in black suits with bags over their faces. They are Eddie’s inner throughs and motivations. Eddie’s marriage is falling apart, his professional life is in shambles, and the BAGHEADS are loving every minute of it. Eddie loves his wife but has drawn distant from her. She is starving for his touch…for his love…for his anything. From mouth watering passion to the demons of our inner thoughts, BAGHEADS is a journey into the sweetest tasting fruit of all—the fruit of letting go and admitting who you really are.
