Storyline

A young couple, Rick and Jenna, fall into despair and heartbreak after losing their four year old child. Reaching out to their last and most twisted expedient, they pay a visit to The Dollmaker, an anesthetizing old man that promises to make reality the only thing they desire most. But every gift has a catch and even though Rick has an unsettling feeling about this arrangement, he'll find himself trapped in this never ending game. Written by Luciana Baldovino

Blew my mind away!!!!
20 September 2020 | by bhaskarulichiSee all my reviews

There are films which are hailed as masterpieces despite being boring throughout, just because of their impressive Plot-twist at the end (I Don't want to name any). It just took 10 mins for filmmaker AI Lougher to literally blew my mind away with an impeccable script and chilling final reveal.

Brilliant Direction, Brilliant Acting, Brilliant Photography, Brilliant What Not.

PS: This is the first Short film I've ever watched and now, literally every other short film that I'm watching is falling short of expectations.
