Synopsis

The inner voice journey of a brokenhearted man as his triggered memories of a past love slowly make him delve into a soul-crushing madness for longing and the acceptance to close that chapter and move on.

dIRECTOR'S STATEMENT

I was going through a divorce with my partner of sixteen years... It started as me just writing my feelings and what was going inside my head. The creeping heartbreak I was suffering as I watched the man I love leave so easily and move on... I decided to flip it around to make it seem it was his suffering, it was a way for me to cope, to not feel hate to somehow in my mind make him seem that he suffered as well. It was a very cathartic process. That there is beauty in endings.
