Shot in one take, Abandon follows Clemmie, an ambitious dancer in her early thirties when she finds out she's unexpectedly pregnant. She's forced to put her emotions and anxiety aside for the final day of rehearsals of her most demanding show yet. Her understudy eagerly awaits for an opportunity to step out, but as the choreography intensifies can Clemmie go on or is she ready to compromise her career and handover everything she's worked so hard for?
