My Life as Abraham Lincoln

In this award-winning, surreal dark comedy, Cindy Rossberg (Caroline Luft) deals with the death of her fiancé (Trevor Nelson) on her wedding day. Her psychiatrist (Gerry Birnbach) encourages her to try to move forward with her life. However, her attempts to reengage with friends and the workforce prove overwhelming, as Cindy is haunted by her past. As reality blurs with fantasy, Cindy finds her world increasingly tied to the murder mystery she is writing. In the end, Cindy must act as her own emancipator in order to free herself from the role she was expected to play.
