Chris, a young newlywed, waits tables all night and writes novels all day, obsessing over what little past he has to reflect on. His wife Melody, a high school English teacher, is in love with him, though his lifestyle poses a financial burden. The two work opposing schedules and rarely get to see one another, which is taking its toll.
The film dips into the surreal, playing with the rhythms of the passing days of married life and the blurry lines of fantasy and commitment.
Featuring a score by acclaimed jazz musicians John Medeski and Chris
Speed, Tiger Tail in Blue, is a gentle ballad to putting your
eggs in one basket, counting your chickens before they're hatched, not being able to see the forest through the trees, and doing whatever you damn-well-please.
