Stag" is the story of an urban loner, Jenny, who must fight for a chance at redemption after she’s invited to her estranged BFF’s bachelorette party. "Stag" is a female-friendship saga that asks the question, “Can you overcome the past?” The filmic quality is luridly akin to “It Follows", while the dialogue is similar to the modern banter in "Cabin in the Woods". The film examines themes of loss, gaslighting, and betrayal. My film is for women of all ages, and especially college and high school students. It’s for the girl I was then, and the woman I am now.
“Stag” is an absolutely female film. It’s written and directed by a female filmmaker. The camera and lighting departments are fully comprised of women. Six of the seven principal characters are played by women, and each bachelorette in the bridal" party is specific and hyper-individual.
