EVERSION (or that time my heart flew out of my mouth) is a  concert-style docudrama that pairs original folk/blues songs with true stories of that crush you had in middle school, that fucker that broke your heart, that person you stayed with too long, or: the uncomfortably human experience of love.

We follow a young single woman in her investigative query into matters of the heart. She examines segments of collected interviews that trace people’s experience with romantic relationships from first crush to present day, while divulging her own heartbreak through biting blues numbers. As the interviews open doors to her personal past, she reveals humiliations from her middle school gymnasium, tests Tinder and vomits up her own heart for the taking.
