MY DOG IS SICK

Sapna Moti Bhavnani

My Dog is Sick pursues a couple traversing through isolation. The alpha male and the conscious female both seeking to destroy each other by pushing dormant buttons and grasping pleasure in serving and devouring. It’s a circle that liberates before it starts to suffocate.
