Diane Davis

Inspired by a missing scene in Crime and Punishment, We Will Not Describe the Conversation follows a massage therapist whose newest client has come with the news that her estranged brother has committed a heinous crime  — killing an elderly woman with an axe — and is nowhere to be found. The women try to piece together how this happened, while also uncovering their own dark desires and the fear that they will one day turn out like him.
