Infatuation and manipulation enter the lives of an adolescent and her father because of the arrival of a reckless femme fatale. A piercing modern fable entwining the lives of an awkward adolescent girl, a malevolent femme fatale, a wheelchair-ridden critic and a once successful novelist, Crush inhabits an unspoilt landscape - Eden before the fall. That is, until a car crash blazes a destructive trail through the lives of the three women and one man.
