The final minutes of an intimate night between two women. One is fifty years old and the other is twenty three. What seems to be a fragile promise of harmony brings about the relationshipメs demise.

“In Alpha, not only two women meet; each meets an individual created to suit the otherメs needs. The game they play is the pattern of their lives. The mythical mother-daughter relationship is a role play they will always seek for, and will always have to hide. I decided to make Alpha when I found a peace of paper stuck to a board in a women’s bar. The note said:
Looking for an adopting mother. Demands: Money, Food, Car, Sex.”
-Dana Goldberg
