In the shadow of an unseasonable Thanksgiving blizzard, recluse Barbara Tompkins and her young lover Marcus’s, plan for a cozy weekend for two is upended by the unwelcome arrival of Barbara’s sister Denise and her domineering boyfriend, Freddie. When Freddie reveals the true intention of he and Denise’s visit, years of hostility and resentment held between Barbara and Denise are unearthed. Their childhood home becomes battle ground and host to a sexually charged surreal journey into the sister’s repressed memories. As the storm rages, a mystic game unfolds that lays bare the insecurities, kinks, and secrets of the sisters and their lovers. To put an end to the madness, Barbara and Denise must ultimately choose whether to succumb, or fight to overcome the Tompkins family legacy. Legacy Land, listed as an honorable mention on the 2019 and on the 2020 Kilroys List, is an unflinching dark comedic dive into the bizarre legacy sex abuse and incest imprints upon the psyche, sexuality, and relationships of its survivors.
