Loved it
17 August 2019 | by ergeorgiev-31623See all my reviews

This short movie is a true masterpiece. It captured and presented crippling anxiety very well. If I never had panic attacks, I wouldn't have been able to relate to it as deeply as I did. I probably would have thought it's another short movie what I can't fully grasp the having of. Being able to understand made me feel special and understood, which put a positive spin on anxiety. Loved it. For anyone suffering, please don't hide it like she does (not from your close ones at least). There's loads of support out there, you just have to find it. I would like to thank my dad, mom and grannies for dealing with my calls at 3 in the morning, it's the best support I could've hoped for.
