“A little while, a moment of rest upon the wind, and another woman shall bear me.” 

― Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet 

 

Dr. Elizabeth Blake discovers her patient's Erotophobia (fear of sex) is inexplicably linked to the lives of several female prostitutes from the past and across the globe.

 

In a non-orthodox conference, Elizabeth takes us on an exploration of this unusual case using mask and music. Between the lines, a thinly veiled obsession with her patient begins progressively to emerge.

 

Part thesis, part psychological thriller, and part cabaret, Love for Sale explores the origins of our fears and the price of female sexuality with tenderness, humour, and Power Point. 

Based on a true story.
