A clip has landed for Francesca Gregorini's Sundance competition entry "Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes," starring Kaya Scodelario ("Wuthering Heights," "Skins") as a young woman who begins a friendship with a neighbor, Linda (Jessica Biel), who looks uncannily like her late mother.

The dream-like quality of the clip matches the Sundance program notes on the film, which promise that the film "vascillates between surrealism and realism" and that "Emanuel must take a courageous journey to enter her dream and help extract Linda from hers."

This is director Gregorini's first solo helming venture, having previously co-directed 2009's "Tanner Hall" with Tatiana von Furstenberg.

"Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes" premieres in Park City on January 18.
