Private Project

True Colours

A harrowing look into a man’s quest to capture what has always eluded him, the ability to see the world its full splendour. His determination will drive him to extreme solutions, that will ultimately reveal his own ‘true colours’. The film culminates in the suggestion that, perhaps, beauty is, quite literally, in the eye of the beholder.
