In its Midwest Premiere, “Free Space” tells the story of a socially awkward young woman named Amelia, and her toxic mother. With a suffocating home life, Amelia’s only respite is going to the community center and setting up for the weekly Bingo game. Little does Amelia know that her weekly Bingo excursions will lead her to a talking Bingo chip, and the game of a lifetime. This psychological thriller utilizes magical realism to hook you to the edge of your seat.
