Endorphine, is an intoxicating cinematic puzzle that takes a trio of seemingly unconnected characters and merges their experiences into a multi-layered narrative that will set your mind reeling.
Twelve-year-old Simone (Sophie Nélisse) feels painfully disconnected from the world after witnessing the brutal death of her mother. Simone (Mylène Mackay), a solitary multimedia artist in her twenties, is struggling to control her crushing panic attacks and keep her day job in an underground parking lot. And Simone (Lise Roy), a sixty-year-old physicist, is giving a conference on the nature of time.
The three Simones’ lives are intertwined in a labyrinthine meta-world where timeframes overlap, characters multiply, and storylines repeat and expand. But, for all its shuttling forward and back through time, Endorphine remains grounded in the Simones’ inner lives — it’s an artistic examination of scientific phenomena that also poignantly explores how people deal with trauma.
