The Persistence of Monday



Monday De Renne enjoys a glamorous life in San Francisco's art scene until her life is upended when she is surprised featured at a (rather suggestive) art show that begins to twist and distort her reality. Fighting to sustain her composure and with the life she painstakingly built, is it worth the trauma to keep it going?

As an art world narrative on the surface, the story unfolds into an exploration of the outward motives we use to mask the insecurities and loneliness we keep hidden inside.
