Katryn's Place

Directed by Bénédicte Ronfard
Canada, 2002 (fiction, 80 minutes, colour, English)

Film Description:
"Katryn's Place is the story of a working-class immigrant struggling to deal with the death of her seemingly perfect husband. Devastated by her loss, Katryn has let things go and depression has driven her back into old habits of alcoholism and promiscuity. A drunken car accident leads to a sobering few days in hospital that bring Katryn to her senses. Determined to straighten out her life, she maps out a way to get her business back on track. But her personal life's not so easily controlled... her new lover is illusive, her mother abusive, and the damn dog her husband left behind keeps running away. Once Katryn decides to follow Dog, she discovers a brutal web of lies and betrayal that send her on a murderous trajectory."
