A Powerful Short Film. A MUST WATCH!!
19 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film has all the great story telling elements a short film should have. I had the pleasure of watching this film and truly enjoyed how emotional turning points are orchestrated in this short film. From the opening to the 2nd act up until the resolution there are great performances throughout and a truly satisfying climax thats truthful and Powerful. This is one short film you should not miss! All the characters are fleshed out perfectly with there own personal goals that blends in well with the overall major dramatic question & the Protagonist journey. A true example of dramatic narrative in short films. Short films are a challenge to make due to its time constraints to develop character and plot. As you will see in this short film all those layers are covered perfectly. GREAT JOB!!
