An unnamed man and woman make preparations to attend a burial in a small, desolate town. After an intense argument separates the two, they find themselves isolated and unnerved. As the burial draws near they begin to experience disturbing, surreal incidents involving manifestations of dread and despair. Abstract dream-like sequences comprise the film, along with expressive cinematography, abrasive sound design, and minimal use of spoken dialogue. A brooding, atmospheric study of the human condition regarding loss, fear, and isolation, It Takes from Within is the debut feature film from writer/director Lee Eubanks.
