Desire

Desire is the story of Francis, a former piano prodigy, now relegated to performing in shabby lounges, seeking solace in drink and loveless sex. His barren existence is transformed when he unexpectedly finds love with an older woman, a lonely elementary school teacher. But their relationship ends in tragedy when she uncovers Francis' unbearable secret.

An emotional journey, Desire peels back layers of psychological skin, exposing the tortured heart of a man searching for his conscience.
