Director Statement

This short film is close to my heart, as its tribute to my best friend, who passed away a few years ago in an accident. Through this short film, I have tried to show an aspect of grief, how different people deal with death in their own way.

Grief can be unpredictable, strange, and personal. It has no straight streak of flow. It comes out in the most unexpected ways.
