Had Such Possibility - Wish I Could Relate More
29 September 2018 | by SomaQuestSee all my reviews

Maybe to grasp all the director was trying to accomplish here would have been better understood with a deeper understanding of this legend. The plot appears to me to be an underdeveloped urban legend thought of for this film and therefore even the good points of this short paled to a story that should have been better written.
