Butter on the Latch is the tale of an entangled female friendship, set in a real-life Balkan music camp in upstate New York, told with avant-garde flourishes and disturbing psycho-sexual undercurrents. Sarah and Isolde are former friends who meet by chance at a music festival. In this mystical setting they embrace the lush natural surroundings, captured with a rare sensuous eye by Decker. The two build a close bond in this female utopia until tensions are strained when Steph, a male camper, arrives. As the friendship collapses, the film becomes a phantasmagoria that recalls the work of David Lynch.
