An aging, isolated woman ordered to perform community service for a DUI discovers that adopting ailing pets to fill the void in her life can be its own obsession.
Charged with pure empathy, Heather Young’s starkly realistic debut deploys natural lighting and sparse dialogue to conjure the deep loneliness of a life marred by addiction. A quietly shattering portrait of the bond between humans and animals, Murmur grapples with the rocky journey towards healing.
