Salvaging a marriage takes time and trust, two things that John and Emily no longer have. Emily is a writer with a career threatening case of writer's block and deadlines approaching. The pressure to finish her novel grows when John sinks into depression and quits his job... right before their first baby is due.
As they head toward a mutual meltdown, John is given a terminal diagnosis that forces him to reassess his life and attempt to save his marriage—before it’s too late. However, inner peace proves elusive, the marriage might be too far gone, and John's life may not be what it seems.
This cerebral drama examines work, love, sex, family, death, birth and all of the things that can bring people together... or drive them apart.
Janus, the two-faced god looks both to the future and the past and therefore presides over: time, transitions, gateways, and the beginning and ending of conflict.
In the film, Emily is an author who controls her own perspective on reality, which gives her a god-like quality. While John is dealing with beginnings and endings within himself. This visual is then paired with an intersecting Venn diagram to create a graphically simple, but successful visual statement.
