In an alternate world where hearts are made of objects and suppressing emotions is self-care, a lonely woman rips out her own heart for the man she loves, only to discover that he has run away with it.
"[W]orks the muscles in the head as much as the heart…while comparisons to the surrealities of Charlie Kaufman are inevitable, With Love and a Major Organ is its own distinct thing."
- The Moveable Feast
"Quippy and biting dialogue plus a slick socially relevant plot make With Love and A Major Organ one of the most imaginative selections at SXSW 2023." - Reel News Daily
