Synopsis

SEE YOU NEXT TUESDAY is a dark comedy about a mentally unbalanced and very pregnant young woman in a hideous orange coat named Mona (Eleanore Pienta). Mona has a crummy job in a supermarket where her coworkers hate her, maintains a strangely close relationship with her recovering alcoholic, leopard-print addicted mother May (Dana Eskelson, 3 BACKYARDS, COLD CREEK MANOR), and tries in vain to maintain a relationship with her estranged, party girl sister Jordan (Molly Plunk, PROFANE) and Jordan's girlfriend Sylve (Keisha Zollar). In the final days of her pregnancy, Mona draws her family members into her mess of a life as she drifts further from reality. 

Director's Statement

As a filmmaker, I have always sought to depict characters and situations that subverted expectations and pushed the boundaries of taste while still retaining an audience’s empathy. SEE YOU NEXT TUESDAY, my first feature, is a very personal film that explores issues of family and relationships in a way that finds unexpected humor in dark moments. Aiming to break free of genre trappings, the film will see an expansion of themes from my earlier work, albeit in an entirely new context. At its core, SEE YOU NEXT TUESDAY is about how adult children come to terms with their parents’ mistakes. May’s past as an addict both directly and indirectly caused problems for Jordan and Mona, as both daughters struggle to break the cycle of dysfunction. Ultimately, I feel that the film ends on a positive note, with the family slowly coming back together and leaving the worst behind them, but that’s up for interpretation. Either way, the characters will do as they’ve always done – move on and continue to live life, hopefully with the support of one another.
