The Ilyanica Trilogy

The Ilyanica Trilogy tells the story of two friends, Ilyana and Erica, who met as college students studying in Berlin in 2005 when they are 20. Ilyana offers a last souvenir to Erica on the final day of their study abroad year, sparking a discussion of values and identity with their futures on the line. They meet up again ten years later in Austin, Texas in a drained out pool where Erica seeks to win Ilyana’s renewed companionship by showing her a film she made of an important incident in their lives. Finally, they meet in their 40s in an abandoned prison in Poland where Ilyana has become involved with a group of radicals occupying the site where the U.S. tortured people in the 2000s.
