Butter on the Latch

Synopsis: At a Balkan folk song and dance camp in the woods of Mendocino, California, Sarah reunites with her old friend Isolde and with a song she learned years before about dragons who entwine themselves in women's hair and carry them off through the forest, burning it as they go. When Sarah pursues a romance with a new camper Steph, the nights of sensual secrets and singing with Isolde come to an abrupt end. Sarah and Steph explore a simple attraction, but in Sarah's dreams, women spin their wild hair and Isolde darkly approaches. When reality and fantasy collide, Sarah finds that the dragons she's visioning may be inside her.

One, one.




I loved it.

Well, now

I can finally sleep.

Thank you, you're amazing.





What do you mean you

don't know where you are?

What do you mean?

Your jaw hurts?

Are you in there?

Get out of there!

Get out of the house,

get out of there.

You don't know them?

You don't need your shoes,

you don't need your shoes!

You can get other shoes,

get out of the house!

They're waking up?

Get out, get out right now.

What do you mean?

Where were you last night?

You're in New York.

You went out,

Pony, you went out?

Are you outside right now?

What do you see?

I promise I'm not going

to hang up on you.

I'm coming to get you

out of that house.

Who the f*ck were those people?



It's fine, totally fine.

You get to choose him or not?

And you get to choose...

No, but everybody

else does, right?

Oh my...

Oh my God!

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey.

What's going on?

I can't believe you made it.

I had no idea you were coming.

You look so much happier.


Do you see them?

What are you doing here?

I had no idea you were

actually going to...

Really, you didn't

get the email?

You look great!

No, don't lean on

me, don't lean on me.


Are you going

to the dance tonight?

Yeah, we're going

to the dance, yeah.

Do you know what

bands are playing tonight?

I don't know.

What's your name?

- Nez.

- - Nez?

- N, E, Z.

- - Nez, N, E, Z.

And my wife is Leah.


It's Isolde and Sarah.

Yeah, thank you.

So we'll see you...

- Yeah, see you soon.

- See you down there.

- - Bye, Nez.

Nice meeting you.

Nice meeting you.

So sweet.

Was he considering

coming with you here?

No way.

That would be hell.

Was it official, the break-up?

Yeah, yeah.

How long has it been since...

It's been like two weeks.

We haven't spoken, so...

Remember Simon?

Oh yeah, what's up?

He went back to London.

He also fucked me

in my ass last week.

It was awesome.

He's always so

surprising, like it was...

I don't know how he pulled

that off, it was as if

we were, like, falling asleep

and then all of a sudden...

He just

pulled a fast one on you?

That's usually how

it starts, you know?

Gain your trust and then...

- And he doesn't have, like,

an ass-fucking dick,

like, it's enormous.

I'm sorry.

No, those are

tender moments, you know?

You have to, like,

really trust the person.

You can't really just pull

that on somebody, you know?

I do trust him.

It would be nice

to be in kind of like a...

Like a formal

relationship, you know?

Like with a man

instead of a boy.

Why wasn't it formal?

He was a man, he was 30.

Yeah, but he's

still a boy, you know?

What happened?

What happened that

made it final, A,

and B, is it final?

Yeah, it's totally final.

That's what

you said a few times ago.

I'm just curious why

you know it's final now.

I just like, okay, okay.

Do you know that place

that's like 2626,

it's in the East Village,

and they give, like,

these scrubs, you know?

- Yeah.

So he was like,

"Okay, go inside,

"make yourself comfortable,"

or whatever, I'm like,

"Make yourself comfortable,

does that mean,

do you like, take

off your clothes?"

It's just a stranger, am

I supposed to be naked,

and it's a guy, what do I do?

They didn't clarify at all.

I'm like, "Well, if I'm

getting my body scrubbed,

"I probably should

be naked, right?"

It just makes sense, you know?

So I was like, "Okay, this

is all right, I understand,

this is professional, so

just go topless," you know?

And then he gives me a

scrub, but he's just this
