Bug Summary

A hallucinatory tale of pests and paranoia, Bug is a dark comedy exploring themes of isolation and delusion. Agnes, a scrappy, drug-addled woman is laying low in an Oklahoma City motel to avoid her ex-husband Goss who is on early release from prison. His arrival spells trouble when he discovers that Agnes has forged a new relationship with an enigmatic younger man named Peter. In this psycho-thriller, residents of this spooky motel are visited by mysterious strangers, haunted by events from their pasts, and attacked by bugs.
