Flying over the dark Atlantic to a small, plush island, Cal and Nat know the week approaching them is going to bring all kinds of debris to the surface. Cal’s estranged mother has called the island home for over ten years and a decade sits firmly between their last interaction and now.

Compartmentalisation 101 explores the relationship between mother and child through the lens of the conversation which unfurls between the young couple. As we move back and forth between 2010 and 2020, we watch Cal retell and reconsider the events of the past. No man’s an island, right?

C101 considers the notions of opening up, healing and being selfish. Who suffers when we choose ourselves? In pursuing peace, who do we take it from? And what does it mean to have the freedom to choose where we ‘belong’?

Mention of death, themes of mental health and racial tension
