”Late 70s, downtown NYC, bar scene. Fara (Sini Hill), the barkeep’s young wife, falls in love with her beautiful stepson, Po (John Busa), just back from California. Early 80s, a filmmaker goes back to the witnesses and players, who tell the story of the tragedy. It’s Phaedra and Hippolytus, shot in a cool-tempered No Wave style.

She’s always had a strong exposure to the arts, which includes playing the piano since the age of 3, theater, dance, visual arts, and singing. In addition to music and arts, Sini actively competed in Aesthetic Group Gymnastics for 8 years.
