Lex Cordova is a young woman who counsels terminally ill clients that have trouble letting go. While proving uniquely talented in her ability to connect with the dying, Lex is at a total loss when it comes to dealing with everyone else. Armed with only the misguided guidance of Gary, her father and business partner, unsolicited loyalty from Nora, a former client obsessed with samurai culture, and an awkward romance with Spencer, a seductive, but morally ambiguous psychic, Lex struggles to help Valerie, her most challenging client yet.
“I was sort of obsessed with death. Evidently, I’m going to die at some point, and this was something I just had to get out into the world. There are a lot of tonal shifts in the film. It goes from comedy to drama – sometimes in a single beat. I wanted to make sure that these actors all had a natural sense of humor and a sense of empathy.”
