Psychotropical is a short film following Charlie after she takes an off-the-market psychotropic drug given to her by her rich, older boyfriend Howard. When he leaves town on business she invites the humanitarian, socially conscious Nate over to continue their secret affair. After the drugs kick in, Charlie and Nate are transported in their minds to a strangely sinister paradise. Psychotropical has been described as “an intensely directed, visually bombastic, cinematic film” and “intoxicatingly erotic, mixed with intense mystery”.
