The Girl with the Mousy Hair
A psychological horror about a middle aged queer woman returning to her childhood home only to see traumatic events from her past acted out in front of her.
A surreal look at repressed trauma as Eve is forced to confront memories of her early childhood, reaching its peak when she decides to enter the room that holds the memory of her being sexually abused by the pest control worker. The tale of Tale of the Pied Piper of Hamelin is woven into the story: Child Eve leads Adult Eve to the core of the story and of the house. Now Eve must save her child self from the man's paws.
