What Is the Story of Heartless?
Set in an eerie home that overlooks Los Angeles, Heartless is the story of Roscoe, a married professor who is staying with his friend (and presumably, lover) Sally and her family. As Sally and Roscoe try to film a documentary about Roscoe’s life, they are constantly interrupted by members of the strange household. There’s Sally’s sister Lucy, an overburdened caretaker who becomes increasingly tired of her responsibilities, Sally’s mother Mable, whose arms and legs are purportedly paralyzed, and Elizabeth, Mable’s dutiful nurse who doesn’t speak—or does she? As the inner turmoil of each family member reaches a fever pitch, Roscoe must decide whether to try to make sense of the strange secrets he has learned or leave the mysterious house forever.
