In this multilayered film, Adina, a successful Latina actress, returns to New York after the death of her sister and the collapse of her marriage, causing her to drift as in a fog. Memories dissolve into the present as she tumbles through a series of intense, complex connections; with a sexy, butch body artist, a beautiful college student, and even a former girlfriend. With confident directing, assured performances, and gorgeous cinematography, What It Was masterfully conveys the emotional textures of Adina's waking dream of a life.
