Written by Kristina Birk and Directed by David WM Kinniburgh
Inspired by both milestone emotional events from the writer's life as well as her artistic influences, the story is designed as a vehicle not only for self-exploration but as a call for catharsis to anyone who has ever been in a life altering relationship, for the good or the bad. It deals explicitly with some of the most hidden, unspoken and disturbing moments that we experience in romantic and personal relationships. The emotional and psychological aspects of the narrative are portrayed as an eye-opening, reawakening juxtaposition to Real Life as we all experience it.
“The Legion is a story about a dysfunctional couple that traps itself in a downward spiral of self-doubt, ego and fury. While fighting each other’s demons, fears and phantoms the characters create a twisted labyrinth of games and struggles uncontrollably projected onto the other's psyche as their relationship progresses toward it's ultimate outcome, living and breathing in the world of the romantic psycho thriller. “
