3 June 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I saw it. it was incredible, amazing, perfect short film and i loved it. It had a lot of depth the acting was really incredible i really have a passion for short films and this was one of the best i have seen so far. It really just has a great meaning and a great feel and can be introduced and wounded up in fifteen minutes is absolutely outstanding. The actors really took the emotion of their characters and made them real and believable which is why this is so great because the message the characters bring are incredible and the finale is just amazing. It is an absolutely flawless piece of art and there should be more short films made like this with messages like this. Well Done!
