Storyline

Robert Barren grew up in a desolate house, and escaped any chance he'd get into his imaginary world. It's no coincidence that Robert tries to escape for a living by becoming a writer, but things keep going from bad to worse. Just like his father, Robert decides to put an end to it all and sets out to the same spot his father chose for the same mission. An unexpected visitor intervenes to lead Robert on an emotional journey, forcing him to confront the harsh reality of his childhood that has been clouded by his flawed memories.

Short film rich in production value and inspiration
23 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Alex Lane shares his vast talent in his short film "Within" as the writer, director, producer and lead actor. He achieved rich production value in many areas such as production design, lighting and locations. There's a bit of the inspiration as we saw in the classic "It's a Wonderful Life" here after Alex took on some very tough and serious subjects. Alex was able to attract amazing actors to join the production. Especially notable were Eric Etebari("") and Elizabeth Bradley (WB's "Vega v. Vega"). Wish real life always had the positive ending like this. I highly recommend seeing this film. Hope to see the full length version soon. Definitely not suitable for children.
