    • Synopsis
    • The Cost of Living is a surreal, comedy-noir about waking up to life. When Lily, a disconnected, neurotic, ‘wellness'-freak, has a brush with death, she comes face-to-face with her worst fear. But DEATH appears to Lily as a femme fatale and Lily finds herself unexpectedly giddy with desire. The force she has tried to distance herself from now appears in the doorway of every room - Lily can no longer deny her own mortality - soon the fear gives way to rapture and a desire to transcend… Lily finally embraces Death, and in doing so experiences a ‘petit mort’, which reconnects her with what it is to be truly alive.
