This short film brings a new interpretation of the famous poem by Edgar Allen Poe. The challenge was to take the poem, extract its core, and make different piece of it. And so, we are introduced to Allen and Lenore; two infamous outlaws. After a failed robbery leaves Lenore fatally wounded, Allen makes the cowardly choice to leave her behind and save himself. Years later, he has retired to farm living, but is still haunted by his choices that day. Little does he know that his punishment will be arriving on swift wings. Written by Anonymous
