How much your life can change in an instant
21 November 2007 | by (Utah) – See all my reviews

This film really makes you look at crime and its consequences from the perpetrator's side of things. So often we look at what the victim has lost. We forget how much the criminal has already lost in lowering his or her guard enough to go against conscience and the natural restraint. Everyone experiences anger and frustration in life. What will we choose to do? Once we choose we are no longer in control of what may follow. I was touched when I realized that I wasn't sure who the "bad guy" was in this film. I recognized human victims and abstract antagonists. This film made me realize how we all loses when one loses himself. Powerful emotions are brought out in this short. I feel the impact every time.
