Ghosts of a Long Ago Drawer

Ghosts of a Long Ago Drawer is an Experimental Short Film using poetic montage/collage/narration to investigate how a fateful moment can decide the direction of our lives, toward destruction or redemption.
Angie, an aging woman, lost and confused with her life, struggles to stay alive when she is faced with a bubbling cauldron of emotions ignited by recent events and surfacing memories of the ultimate tragedy that happened to her 40 years ago. Searching for answers while longing for relief from her suffering, she returns to the scene of the crime, her living room sofa.
