Safety Net

No matter how many safety nets we have to catch us when we fall, we are still vulnerable to life’s pitfalls.

Film notes

Safety Net is a psychological drama about dependability and trust that intercuts between the lives of a woman trapped in a failing marriage and a man faced with an extreme financial burden. The film examines their reactions in the face of betrayal and injustice, which set them on a collision course for disaster.

Safety Net is a film on the personal politics of communication, dependence and trust. Safety, by definition, is an ambiguous term. Safety may imply a stable job, a stable income, or a lifelong partner. Conversely, lack of safety, only suggests fear and anxiety
