Qiana and Peter slip away to New Hampshire for a romantic weekend only to come face-to-face with a gruesome and astonishing sight. Why is Qiana so perturbed? Why is her untamed nature rising to the surface? And what is drawing her towards the trees? Deer and the Lovers is a comedy about being lost in love, lost in the woods, and searching for one's purpose when life veers off track.
