When turmoil erupts in her personal life, a struggling writer finds that her real-world problems have begun to cross over into her work, leading to a quest to better understand herself as an artist. Told in a fragmentary style that blurs the line between reality and imagination, Fictions considers the everyday tolls–the personal as much as the aesthetic–of getting our longings onto the page.
