Cassie is recently homeless and is about to spend her evening at a night shelter for the first time. The shelter offers her food, people to make her feel safe and a bed for the night. For the first time since living on the streets, she feels less on edge and then…the lights go out. The darkness envelops the building, strange noises are heard from the rooms, Cassie can’t sleep and wanders down the hall to investigate. What she finds is the true face of evil, power and corruption, feasting on her fellow guests and with no escape forthcoming she is left with a choice. To give up all that makes her human or be the next meal on evil’s dinner list?

Sour Milk is a story that explores many social themes, that are sometimes difficult to talk about. The general theme of homelessness is added with the central theme of power and the different dynamics between homeless people and the ones that run shelters. There is also the feeling of being powerless that being a young person living on the streets brings, which is where the central question of how much of your humanity and of your person, would you be prepared to lose, to feel safe? Comes from.
Sour Milk also explores themes of anxiety and addiction. Our main character displays her anxiety from the moment we see her, this is a new experience for her, and she is very guarded with who she trusts. One of the other characters in dealing with her addiction problems. Through her we explore the idea that someone can be a good person who wants to help others, but due to her illness can sometimes act in a way that they wouldn’t normally do.
