Does ambition force us to compromise our ideals? What is the cost of success and how far will we go to achieve it? Mimi, an artist with a troubled sexual past, works out her issues in her relationship with her boyfriend, using it as fodder for her artwork. A dark meditation on love, loss and the dilemmas we face in our daily lives, Almost There is a probing journey into the heart of these questions.
