"Swollen stigma" nourishes the fantasy of its protagonist´s inner life and proposes a lesbian imaginary which takes leap into risk and displacement. The film opens with an entranced seated woman working her fingers through a single strand of hair and proceeds to explore her lived imaginary in which desire and fear interlace. She re-visions different moments in time which are haunted by an absent lover. Like a playful fairy princess, this lover appears upside down in an armchair, hanging legs-down from the ceiling, playing dead on the floor, or eating roses; her body continuously permeates the woman´s reality. The film´s shifting points of view junp between the protagonist, fantasy spaces and her lover and make an internal world leak into an external one with the fluidity of blood into water.
