Great artistry and musical background.

Imagery was unique in a captivating sort of way. The monologue was so well interwoven with the music, that the tone was set immediately.

The ultimate "good wins out" is present, while the simplicity of the entire event demonstrates what can be done with a short.

Enjoy the intent, and don't be diverted by the suggestive landscape. This only serves to amplify the plot's intent quickly, and helps drive the emotion of the moment.

Worth your time, not just because it's a short. This wouldn't work any other way. Nicely done.
