David and Lynn are in the midst of a relationship crisis—he's lost his job, and his self-esteem and libido are at a nadir—on the morning of September 11, 2001. When news of the terrorist attacks reaches their home, David becomes fixated on the twenty-four hour television coverage with an intensity that makes Lynn uneasy, despite their relationship's new, if unclear, vitality.
A raw and uncompromising human drama, “COVERAGE” shines a critical light on the media's exploitation of the events of 9/11, while also exploring the blurry boundaries of human sexuality and powerlessness in the technological age.
