Bleeding Heart (2015)


May (Jessica Biel) seems to have it all- a caring boyfriend, a beautiful home, and a stable life as a yoga instructor in sunny Los Angeles. But despite appearances, May, who grew up with adoptive parents, feels a void not knowing her biological family. When she discovers that she does, in fact, have a biological sister, she puts her budding career on hold to find her. May’s first meeting with Shiva (Zosia Mamet) is a success. The sisters bond immediately and see aspects of themselves in each other. The second time they meet, however, May is shocked to find that Shiva’s boyfriend, Cody, has a penchant for violence and Shiva may be at his mercy. To get Shiva away from Cody, May suggests a weekend away in Santa Barbara. Along the way, Shiva reveals that she is working as a prostitute and Cody is her pimp. May must decide how far she is willing to go to free her only blood relative as it becomes increasingly clear just how precarious Shiva’s existence is.
