Angela is trapped in her basement, waiting out what appears to be an approaching storm. Though a self-proclaimed unreliable narrator, she begins to reflect on a lifetime of trauma, bringing to light the truth behind her endangerment. Based on Hamlet’s famous “To be or not to be” soliloquy, Natural Shocks is a condemning exploration of violence, abuse, and firearms in America.
Content Advisory: Script contains strong language and references to domestic abuse, gun violence, mass shootings, and mental health issues.
Directed by Erin Ripley
