New mother Molly (Eléonore Hendricks) is overcome with the need to run away. Feeling abandoned by her husband and unable to connect with her infant son, she takes up an invitation from her old high school group of guy friends to go on a weekend trip to the mountains. Without the pressure of daily responsibilities and with the help of psychoactive mushrooms, Molly comes out of her shell and is ready to accept the beauty and love that can be found in nature. When Molly's “trip” turns into a dark out-of-body experience she is forced to choose between the person she was and the person she's become. At its heart this is a film about reconnecting with one’s vibrant carefree nature and finding personal satisfaction in life. But it also delves into more complex themes like the various meanings of individuality, responsibility, and societal pressures assigned to mothers. When given the opportunity to connect on deeper levels of understanding, the group forges new ties and breaks through constructed walls to find they have a lot more in common than initially expected. Come Down Molly is a comedy about friendship, growing older, and psychedelic drugs. —Mallory Lance
