Intriguing subliminal message
8 November 2018 | by jjaredjensonSee all my reviews

This short film was quite captivating. The message behind the story is quite open to interpretation. It has a meaningful and thought provoking ending that may come by surprise. Over all it was defiantly worth the 11 minutes of my time.
