There's a reason why this film won awards.
18 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The swift exposition immediately engages and hooks the audience with an unexpected and compelling conclusion. Rather than forcing a contrived and spelled-out thematic idea down the viewer's throat, the film respects the audience's intelligence enough to leave us wondering what we'd do in the situation.

The purposeful and graceful cinematography works smoothly in conjunction with the well-written script to bring the story to life without being too over-the-top. The images subtly build on each other not only to create the tone of the movie, but it also smartly furthers character development as well.

I highly recommend taking the time to watch this short film.
