Voltage

## ## ## ##

With gallows humour and excruciating realism, Voltage tells of the agony involved in falling hard for Mr. Wrong. Equal parts determined and despondent, Lizzy attempts to get something going with techno DJ Bernhard. He for his part makes no secret of the fact that the feeling isn’t mutual, preferring instead to use her clumsy advances to serve his own aims. When he asks her to drive him to a party one night, Lizzy summons up a last bit of hope.
