About: "things are against us"

A tale of disappearing sisters, the Spanish poet, Lorca, and a young man trying to unearth the dark secrets of his grandfather's past. All roads lead to a mysterious house with a mind of its own. Inspired the Lizzie Borden murders, things are against us [les choses sont contre nous] is an absurdist drama about uncomfortable female desire, New England, and the animosity inanimate objects have against the animate world.
