A New Tense

After a traumatic event in Melbourne, Laurie escapes to Berlin, only to have to come back six months later to bury her estranged mother.
She tries to reconnect with her best friend, Jones, who’s ignoring her.
But she’s doing fine.
More or less.
Set in a boozy and drug-fuelled summer in Melbourne, A New Tense is about grief, friendships, and the family that people make when they don’t have their own.
