An ominous and bleak atmosphere permeates a desolate town as an unnamed man and woman make preparations to attend a burial. The two begin to experience disturbing, surreal incidents involving manifestations of dread and despair while the internment draws near. Abstract dream-like sequences comprise the film, along with expressive cinematography, abrasive sound design, and minimal use of spoken dialogue. A brooding study of the human condition regarding loss, fear, and isolation, It Takes from Within is the debut feature film from writer/director Lee Eubanks.
