"Now Eat My Script is a precipice, a fluid solution in which some spectral noises of the self float adrift. Narration takes the role of a pregnant writer who continuously affirms her hunger and clumsiness towards language and history. Her body is crossed over by both the years to come and the stories that have been buried. As a would-be pirate, she navigates through the tumult of familiar waters. A faltering, yet seemingly omniscient text roams among cities, and between memories that cannot find a proper place, or a proper fiction: After Eight chocolates, children’s group showers, a yellow car that resembles a Dodge, or a pigeon rock where men kill themselves become the phantom limbs of the sacrificed visceral body of speech and story telling that surrounds them. Now Eat My Script is about knowing disastrously."

The film is a satirical family portrait of sorts explored through image, movement, space and time. Dream-like the film unfolds, revealing fragments of a dark and broken narrative. Set in a tiny cottage that once happened to be a slaughterhouse, the characters pose like masked actors on stage almost performing for the camera. The idea of family takes on a disturbing and eerie tone as the film progresses.

Everyday when we wake up we part with a totally different life or even a completely different world. The dreams and the pictures we see every night sometimes are easily to be understood and coherent with our daily living. But sometimes they are so complex that a convincing picture or something understandable can not be made from them. We forget most of it and some aspects remain like an incomplete puzzle in our mind.
