The Nine-Chambered Heart is a compendium of shifting perspectives that follows one women’s life, making her dazzlingly real in one moment, and obscuring her in the very next.

Set in nameless cities, moving between east and west it tells the story of nine different characters experiences with a young woman — the same woman whom they have loved, or who has loved them.

It takes a look at the fragile, fragmented nature of identity and how we perceive and are perceived by others based on the bits and pieces seen or shown.
