Tender Napalm

Have you seen the view?

Witness two lovers hold each other hostage as they strive to create, build, and destroy their own private universe... and possibly one another. Tender Napalm is a visceral, passionate, and violent dissection of a Man and Woman's relationship set in an imaginative realm where time and space constantly shifts and explodes.
