SYNOPSIS

Lemon: a person or thing that proves to be defective, imperfect, or unsatisfactory. Isaac Lachmann is a dud. Isaac Lachmann is 40. Isaac Lachmann is a man in free fall immobilized by mediocrity. His career is going nowhere. His girlfriend of ten years is leaving him. And his overbearing family doesn’t help matters. What did he do to deserve this? Things were supposed to work out differently for him. Isaac Lachmann had big dreams. Now he just watches as his life unravels.



DIRECTOR’S STATEMENT – JANICZA BRAVO

“One day I had the pleasure of waking up in my thirties. I noticed a dark cloud hanging over my head and a crushing sensation in my chest. Most of what I had imagined or seen for myself had yet to materialize. The only things that I had were a pit in my stomach and a ball in my throat.


With that as my new starting point, I plunged head first into an abyss.

LEMON is a pure manifestation of my greatest fear; arriving at a life or an end meant for someone else. You're supposed to be the hero of your own life but what do you do if you aren't born with the tools?

I thought I deserved certain things. I felt like I'd been handed a fair amount of suffering that I had done a great job of getting through. I felt I’d put in plenty of days and hours into my craft and nothing worthwhile was presenting itself. LEMON was birthed out of a deep frustration.
