A dark romantic fairytale about a young woman, 'Clara', who is involved in a car crash with her husband, 'Morten'. As she wakes up in her partial sighted state, she realises that the accident has drastically changed their relationship and their lives. Clara spirals into a breakdown, isolating herself from everyone, becoming almost agoraphobic. Seeing this, Morten insists they should move on and start a new life. Not being able to see since the accident, Clara seeks solace in her familiar surroundings, she feels vulnerable and increasingly suspicious of Morten's motives. Gradually, as Morten tries to get her to understand the reality of how things have changed for them, she begins to experience flashbacks from the car accident which hint at a hitherto unknown truth.

This is an absolutely astonishing short work concerning a couple's relationship set back by a car crash. Deeply moving and inspiring. The story, acting, editing and music, are all powerful and evocative. The detail is amazing without giving too many early clues to the story; I love the lighting and the eerie feel. The direction is so absorbing, symbolic and delicately nuanced that it requires several viewings. I must get hold of a copy of this. I recommend this to anyone. It should have been longer! I think it was one of the most beautiful and poignant short films I've ever seen. Unfortunately, I got to see it only once and didn't get a chance to fully take it in, and there was definitely a lot there to take in. The maker of this visually poetic film should do more.
