An exhausted, workaholic actress abruptly extricates herself from a successful but mind-numbing TV role, returning to her past life in New York to reinvent herself. But despite the desire for transformation, she cannot find herself outside of her career. When an upsetting personal betrayal unexpectedly leads to the role of her life, she must confront the reality of her past relationships in order to clear a path forward. A Woman, A Part marks the feature debut of celebrated filmmaker and visual artist Elisabeth Subrin.

Visual artist Elisabeth Subrin's debut recalls classic Cassavetes with its actress lead suffering a breakdown, and Maggie Siff's performance is great.
