Tanya realizes she’s asexual and the highly sexually charged world she lives in as an actress and partner begins to fall apart, resembling an unbearable nightmare.
As Tanya wakes up to the realization that she does not experience sexual attraction the way the majority of the world does, sexualization is thrown at her in everything she does. Who she was no longer fits. As an actor in an industry that perpetuates women’s worth based on sex appeal and an immediate circle of friends are “woke” to female sexual empowerment, her sanity begins to slip away.

“2 Weeks” is a film about asexuality told in a cinematic, genre-fueled way. It’s about finding courage to own who you are and not letting the pressure of the world take you. I look to many films for inspiration, both horror films and films about misunderstood protagonists, and struggling heroines.
