PLOT SUMMARY: Captivity is the about Holley (Jacqui Pugh) and Alex (Aaron Burns), a married couple whose relationship begins to falter when Holley blames her husband for her bird’s failure to thrive. Alex, who works at a pet store, beings to spend more and more time with his employee, Shauna (Shine Sturtz), who provides an enticing change from his home life. Shauna’s weakness for unavailable men leads her to take things further than she should. Past traumas, unfulfilled needs, and unspoken desires make their way to the surface of everyday life. Captivity examines how mindless psychological patterns and urban routines obstruct us in our search for connection.
