EOB is a film about bullying — that’s the easiest way to describe it. The film focuses on the short life of Elizabeth Octavia Baxter ‘EOB’. It’s about the choices she makes, her resources, and her inability to tap those resources. Reflected through her story, the film is about how far we can or cannot see outside ourselves and our own pain. EOB is about the tragic consequences of discovering too late what happens when we refuse to open our eyes.

At 81, Jamie Ross, a retired art professor lives in a falling down studio crammed with his own work and thousands of objects he has collected over the decades. His current passion is rescuing intriguingly shaped tree limbs from his wood pile and turning them into finely polished shapes adorned with some of his favorite words, such as ‘seemlessness.’ One rain-soaked afternoon, as water drips from the ceiling, he shares his thoughts on the meaning of art and his own mortality.
