a soft place to fall is a dance film that investigates a couple’s shifting relationship. This dance tells the passionate story of a man and a woman and the humour and peril of becoming vulnerable to each other as the two move through states of obsessiveness and determination.

Colour saturated, the aesthetic supports the playfulness in the dance as well as the caustic, tender and poignant qualities of the relationship.
