Abscission is a new drama exploring modern love and gender politics. Ben, a man recently released from prison, is eager to leave his mistakes behind and begin the fresh start he feels he's worked so hard for. When he wakes up to find his previously-dead wife in bed beside him, he thinks it's his second chance to do it all over again. To be better. But when the couple is mysteriously trapped in their apartment, both are forced to reckon with the choices that fractured their marriage, their lives, and their reality.
